In order for a Christian to faithfully respond to the challenging topics of sexuality and gender, one must engage and understand Scripture’s teaching on these matters. This two-part course will help to increase the Church’s understanding and compassion towards those experiencing same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria, so all may be cared for in love and truth. We will create space for Christians to learn and talk about these challenging topics together, so that voices may be heard, questions addressed, and the Church encouraged to live faithfully today.
Registration includes Saturday lunch. Childcare is available on Saturday for those who register by December 27. Scholarships are available. Contact Kathy Hare (KHare@StAndrews.Church or 843.284.4316).

At an Alpha course, people explore the Christian faith in a relaxed setting during nine thought-provoking weekly sessions, along with a one-day (Saturday) session.
Everyone is welcome at Alpha and people attend for a wide variety of reasons. Some are investigating whether God exists or if there is any point to life, some are concerned about what happens after death. Others may have attended church on and off all their lives but feel they have never really understood the basics of the Christian faith.
People come from many different backgrounds, holding many different viewpoints – but all come with the same objective: to establish whether Jesus Christ has any real relevance for their lives. Dinner and childcare (ages 6 weeks – 5th grade) are included.
