ABOUT YOUTH ALPHA
High School teens (Grades 9-12) at OLM are asked to attend Youth Alpha as they think about their decision to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Run over 9 weeks, each session looks at a different question that teens can have about faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is a safe, non-judgmental, friendly, and welcoming space to explore life's big questions together. Join us for an engaging video talk and small group conversation.

PARENTS: CAN YOU HELP?
Parents, can you help with various duties at the Alpha sessions? We could use help with set-up, check-in/attendance/temperature checks, cleaning, etc. This is needed to help make the experience for our teens the best it can be, including as SAFE as it can be. Please indicate on the sign-up page that you can help during your teen's Alpha session and we'll be in touch with you to go over the details. Thank you for your support of the Alpha for Youth program!
