Church to begin Alpha Course
The Sellersburg United Methodist Church, 226 North New Albany St., Sellersburg, will begin the Alpha Course, 6:30 p.m., Saturday, March 3, at the church.

Each weekly session begins with an informal dinner, followed by a large-group learning time, and ends with small-group discussion and interaction. Alpha began in London and is now held in thousands of churches around the world. Join the thousands who have found answers to their questions about life and God and how they relate. There is no charge for the meal or the program. A nursery will be provided, if needed.
