Church News: From Meaning of Life to Bible School
Beginning Wednesday, June 24, the Cornerstone Church in Leadville will be offering an Alpha series at City on a Hill Coffee Shop from 7-8:30 p.m.

Over a series of about ten sessions, you’ll find out about the basics of the Christian faith. Each session involves a main talk (video) and some time to say and discuss what you think. It’s fun, relaxed and free, and you can ask anything you like. Refreshments and coffee will also be provided free of charge. Please contact Jason Horning with any questions at 720-629-3129 or Jason@cornerstonechurchbv.com Cornerstone Church in Leadville is located at 117 E. 6th St., across from the Sixth Street Gym and offers Sunday services at 9 a.m. But remember, the Alpha sessions will be at the coffee shop.
