An Alpha Story: Amy Powell

My earliest experiences with God was going to church with my parents and grandmother in North Carolina. I was baptized at age 12 and went through confirmation. Those events felt special, but as soon as I started high school, I walked away from the Lord. In my junior year, I began dating someone who talked […]

An Alpha Story: Amie Sarte

When I came to the United States in February 2011, I wanted to possibly join a Christian Church. When I visited the churches, the services were good, but they really didn’t feel like home for me.

An Alpha Story: Erin Garriepy

My husband and I had heard great things about Alpha – both in our relationships with God and in relationships with other members of the church. We really wanted to experience them for ourselves.

Alpha Story: Jen P.

I was led back to Peñasquitos Lutheran Church (PLC) several years after our family was a part of the preschool community there. I had some questions about religion and what church was best for our family. PLC & Peñasquitos Christian Preschool (PCP) have always been so supportive and welcoming to us. I started attending weekly services regularly and found […]

Alpha Story: Dana Kloo

Eight years ago, I was a different person. I was a broken woman in non-stop pain from chronic daily migraine. My sensitivity to light and sound made life excruciating and I was in my bed in the dark as much as possible. My heartbeat hurt my head, teeth, and jaw so badly that it made […]
