Why Value Chi Alpha? 


Chi Alpha is a fun-filled weekend event at The Heights Church where teenagers from over 60 schools will converge together to reflect on a few relevant questions.  Who is God?  Who am I?  And, how does His presence or lack thereof impact my life?  Teenagers from all walks of life will discuss this and much more in age- and gender-specific small groups lead by various young adults. They will gather in large group sessions at the church as well as small group sessions in approved host homes throughout our community.  The theme this year is This Changes Everything from 2 Corinthians 5:17-21.  Chi Alpha 2018 will be one of the most impactful weekends for your teenager. 


Here is what a former student had to say about their experience as a Sophomore,

Chi Alpha is the event that has most significantly changed and affected my walk with the Lord. My sophomore year I walked into Chi Alpha hurting, completely unengaged, and bitter. I wanted nothing to do with the whole event because I knew people got emotional and things got personal, and I had no desire for my group and my group leader to know the things I was doing and the way I was living.

Every year, we witness teenagers grow in their faith, experience faith for the first time, build community with old friends and new, and have loads of fun in the process.  Be sure to get your teenager and their friends registered for Chi Alpha 2018.  They will not want to miss it!
