Basics of Christianity will be course topic

Resurrection Lutheran Church, 9925 Bailey Road, Woodbury, will begin a new 10-week Alpha course on Monday evenings, beginning Jan. 11.

Sessions begin with a supper at 6 p.m., followed by a large-group learning time and end with small-group discussions and interaction.

Basic questions of the Christian faith are addressed in the course, such as "Who is Jesus?" "Why and how should I read the Bible?" and "Does God still heal today?"

Alpha, according to organizers, "is an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening setting over 10 thought-provoking weekly sessions. It is low-key, friendly and fun - and is supported by all the main Christian denominations."
