If you have been considering joining a Women’s Bible study group, now is a great time! We are beginning a new study on October 7 based on the book of Ruth. Those of you who have been participating in these studies over the time of physical separation have really benefited from the extra time in personal scripture study as well as the wonderful friendships that have developed. We would love for you to join us!
Bible study description:
If you’ve ever experienced loss, loneliness, or seasons of great change or difficulty, then you can immediately identify with the events and people in the book of Ruth.
While Ruth begins as a story of heartache, it doesn’t stop there. Mourning turns to dancing as themes of loyalty, kindness, boldness, acceptance, love, and redemption are uncovered. But ultimately, Ruth is a book about the providence of God.
We should never underestimate the seemingly small events in our lives. Whether it is caring for family, getting married, working, showing kindness to our neighbors, or raising children… all of it is being used by God for the good of those who love Him, for His glory, and for the salvation of others.
The book of Ruth reminds us that no event or person is insignificant in the plan of God.
We offer meeting times via Zoom on Wednesdays at 6:30pm or Thursdays at 11am. You may purchase a hard copy of the study or download it for free. For more information on both of those options, follow this link: https://lovegodgreatly.com/lgg/ruth-bible-study/.
Zoom links for the Bible studies will be sent out prior to the meetings. If you have any questions, please contact Stephanie Leff, Director of Faith Formation.
