Strange and Bizarre Stories from the Bible

In this study we will tackle those stories from the Bible that sound strange to modern ears and perhaps strange at any time.  While some may use the seemingly bizarre events to ridicule the Word of God, these curious stories contain powerful truths about life and our relationship to our God who is the Giver of life.  Come along on this journey as we walk on the wild side of the Bible.  Beginning Sunday evening, June 2nd.

Blessings,


Dr. Jesse Waggoner
Senior Pastor
