Church in the Woods at Freedom Ranch

Discover who God has made you to be in Christ & the freedom to truly love others!

Who We Are:

Alpha Ministries, "Church in the Woods" is a recovery minded church comprised of people who understand their own worth as persons in Christ, and are, therefore able to actually care about the needs of others in a variety of ways.

If you don't feel free, and are confused, and trying hard to be sure that God loves you and blesses you, Alpha Ministries is for you. Alpha Ministries will help you to enjoy the rest and peace that Jesus promised when he told us to take his yoke and rest.

We are dedicated to teaching the gospel of grace and practicing the "critical event" of loving one another like Christ.  As we learn who God has made us to be in Christ we are set free to care about others in our homes, on the job, and in the community.

Church Services start at 11:00 am Sunday mornings with Children's Church. 

Your welcome to check out our other website at www.alphaministries.org for more information.

Fourth of July

This, then, is the state of the union:  free and restless, growing and full of hope.  So it was in the beginning.  So it shall always be, while God is willing, and we are strong enough to keep the faith.  ~Lyndon B. Johnson

  Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.  ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.

 ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

From every mountain side
Let Freedom ring.
~Samuel F. Smith, "America"
