Reverend Ben Alexander is also offering a series called Binging the Bible.  Ben discovered through a recent informal poll that folks would rather binge on the Bible than on Netflix.  So, Ben has begun a weekly Bible Study called “Binging the Bible.”  In the first session, Ben will equip folks with questions and things to look for in a book of the Bible.  Then, the next week in a follow-up session, Ben will speak about that book via video. At the end of the discussion, Ben will introduce the next book.  There will be three different sessions of “Binging the Bible”: 

Wednesdays at 10 a.m.

Thursdays at 12 p.m.

Thursdays at 8 p.m.
