New Bible Study Starting in January, RUTH
Mark your calendars! The first of 5 sessions on the Bible Study, the Study of the Book of Ruth will begin on Monday January 9th at 2PM in the Calvary Lutheran Church conference room. Ruth: The shortest book of the Bible. Ruth is the story of Naomi as she faces famine, the death of her family, and her return to Bethlehem as a widow with a barren daughter-in-law.
We will study the book as a group following these 4 principles:
1. God is the true hero of the story.
2. God created women to be his image bearers.
3. The culture of Ruth is completely foreign to the world we know.
4. The entire book is one story.
Contact Diane Diekroger or Janis Lane if you would like more information or if you plan to attend. There is no booklet to purchase, just bring your Bible. Any version is great!
