Throughout the year, we offer different opportunities for adults to explore our faith, study the Bible, and grow as followers of Jesus Christ.   Many of our class sessions are offered both during the day and in the evenings, and they are frequently offered at Christ Church here in La Plata as well as at our sister church, Christ Church-Wayside (13050 Rock Point Rd, Newburg, MD).


Alpha is an intro or refresher course in the basics of the Christian faith.
Each evening begins with a friendly meal, followed by a talk given by Pastor Kate,
and then a discussion. We will begin at 6:30 and end by 8:45. On May 5 there is a day retreat, which is integral to the program. Come and see and bring a friend!

Alpha, like most things in life, is most beneficial when we are able to participate fully.
You will get the most out of it – and give the most to it – if you can join us every week.
We understand there may be major conflicts on occasion. The Alpha retreat on May 5 is an important part of the course. Taking time and space apart from our daily routine allows us to respond to the material in a different way. We have found these retreat days to be gifts from God – we hope you will give yourself the gift of setting aside that time. Your clergy promise that no church duties should interfere with it – we hope no personal or professional obstacles arise either!
