Join us @ Jake's for Alpha!

We invite you to come to Jake O'Connor's in Excelsior to explore life, meaning and faith.  Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith.  


Each session looks at a different question and is designed to create safe conversation.  There's no pressure, no follow-up and no charge; it's just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life's big questions together.

EXPLORE Life, Faith, Meaning

What to expect

We have an incredible place to gather, Jake O'Connor's in Excelsior, MN.  Anytime we try something new, we take a risk.  We understand that coming to something new is a risk and we don't take that lightly. Our vision is to create a welcoming space that is safe to explore meaning, life and faith.  We'll start with food, watch a video and discuss in small groups what we experienced.

  • Food

    Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. We start with food, because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.


    Jake O'Connor's has great food. It's on us! (free-will offering) Cash bar available.

  • Talk

    Each session has an engaging video teaching.  The videos explore questions, issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity.  Themes include questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? 

  • Discuss

    We welcome honest questions and any question is welcomed! This is a chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything. And there’s nothing you can’t say. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

Hang tight while we prepare your form...
