Pastor's Bible Study

Ever wonder about all those feasts in the Old Testament that the Jews celebrated together...and we don't? Seems like we missed the party bus or something in sharing these times of jubilation. Let's explore them together and discover their place in the Christian's life. Sundays @9!
