Frazer offering class for those afraid to ask questions at church

Frazer United Methodist Church will be offering a class that gives people a place to ask questions they feel uncomfortable asking in church.

The Alpha Course, an international phenomenon that began in England and has swept the United States, allows participants to explore the big questions of life in a relaxed environment. Frazer United Methodist Church will offer the Alpha Course, beginning September 12, for 10 weeks on Monday nights.

Alpha is an introduction to Christianity designed for those who have no prior knowledge of the Bible. Participants explore the meaning of life, the purpose of existence, and the basic claims of Christian faith.

"Sometimes people aren't comfortable asking questions or discussing their doubts in a formal church setting," says Frazer Teaching Pastor Patrick Quinn. "The goal of Alpha is to provide a relaxed, non-judgmental, non-critical environment where no question is off-limits and everyone is assumed to be starting from zero in terms of knowledge about Christianity."

Each weekly session will include a meal, short lecture time, and group table discussions. There is no cost to participants and childcare is available with registration. The course will run Mondays, September 12 through November 21 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

An introductory dinner will be offered on Monday, August 29, at 6:00 p.m. for those who want to learn more about Alpha.
