Fall 2018 Session Groups

Sunday services aren’t enough, no matter how great the teaching or the music. That’s where groups come in.

If you’re looking to make friends; or you want to go a little deeper on a topic; or maybe life is good and you just want to reach out to others; or perhaps your life isn’t going the way you planned and you need people to pray with you and support you –Groups are here for you.

Groups are open and welcoming. They provide a social and spiritual venue to encourage each other and grow in faith. There’s nothing like seeing God working in someone else’s life to encourage you.

In ALC groups, you can study how to become more like Christ, discuss Sunday's sermon with others, learn more about the Bible and yourself. ALC hosts a very successful Celebrate Recovery support group for people who have hurts, habits or hang ups and want to get free and stay free from them. So, get involved along with others, who are seeking more of God. Sign up for a group by clicking below.

Starting Point

  • Group Leaders: Shauna Drye and Barbara Wade
  • Synopsis: During childhood, you may have been handed a faith framework through which you began to view the world. For a lot of us, that childhood framework didn't survive the rigors of adulthood. It's not enough to say, "The Bible says . . . ," in the face of real-life tragedy. Adults often need a new starting point. But the starting point for Christian faith isn't, "The Bible says . . . ." It's better than that. It's Jesus.
