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.

Weekend Campout


Church in the Woods

March 16-18, 2018

Dear Saints;

Now is the time to sign up for a weekend camp at the Church in the Woods at Freedom Ranch, Okeechobee. The weather is perfect, the music is good, the food is great, and the fellowship and classes will be refreshing. Originally planned as a “Rest in Recovery Retreat” especially for those in recovery we have decided to offer the experience to all individuals and families wanting encouragement in their daily application of the gospel of grace. Activities range from simply enjoying a quiet time in the woods, fellowship with family and friends, to structured recreation. Classes for both adults and kids will be offered to celebrate the good news of who God has made us to be in Christ.
