    St. Jude's church to begin Alpha program

    St. Jude's Anglican Church will bring the Alpha Course to the Tehachapi community, beginning at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Jan. 26. The free, 10-week program designed to be a welcoming, friendly environment to explore questions regarding the Christian faith, has been enormously successful for over 25 years in helping people of all ages and walks of life discover answers to the questions of life: "Why are we here?" "Who is Jesus and what does He have to do with me?" "What does it mean to be a Christian?" Each gathering begins with a meal, followed by a video and a discussion. The supportive atmosphere welcomes all questions without judgment, and the small groups are often filled with laughter as well as understanding as participants work through issues together.

    Alpha will be held at 1200 S. Curry St. Childcare will be provided for those with young children. Early sign ups before Jan. 19 are encouraged. For more information, contact Steve Smith at 305-6317 or email
