Lady Strong – Our new Bible study series

Let’s talk about the bad girls. 

Its not often in church that we learn about the women in the Bible. When we do, we tend to review the same old stories, like Esther and Ruth. There are some pretty significant women in the Bible that are often overlooked.  Join us as we study the women characters in the Bible, some of the bad girls that demonstrate God’s glory and grace in the world in unconventional ways.

Join us at our regular gathering times on Sundays and Wednesdays as we explore these lady-strong characters. Bible study to be led by Rev. Ricardo Tavarez and guest Bible Teacher, Rev. Lin Stoner. Rev. Lin’s bio is below.
