Since when did church ever give permission to be bad?

That's exactly the kind of behavior Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Palmerton will encourage at this Sunday's worship services.

While one doesn't have to be bad to join, all bad girls and bad boys are welcome for the program "Bad Girls of the Bible" and discover what can be learned from them.

The sessions will start with Eve – the original bad girl – and continue for 10 weeks through Jezebel.

The group will meet at 9:30 a.m. Sunday in the adult education room, and visitors are encouraged to use the Fifth Street entrance.

The sessions are free and open to the public. All materials will be supplied.

Anyone with questions may contact the church at (610) 826-2524.
