Explore marriage, Christianity

Resurrection Lutheran Church, 9925 Bailey Road, Woodbury, is accepting registration for "The Alpha Course" and "The Marriage Course."

The Alpha Course for adults begins Monday, Sept. 15, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. 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."

Weekly sessions begin with a supper, followed by a large-group learning time. The session ends with small-group discussion 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?" Freewill offerings are accepted.

Another Alpha resource, The Marriage Course, will be held on seven Sunday evenings beginning Sept. 21. The course offers married couples practical tools "to build a strong and healthy marriage that lasts a lifetime."

More information about both class offerings is available at Register for either course by calling the church at (651) 730-1000 by Sunday, Sept. 7.
