“Ruth: The Best is Yet to Come”


We will move to a new worship series in November, one that begins with grief and takes us to a place of restoration and gratitude. Having spent several weeks in a topically themed New Testament based study, we now move to an Old Testament book study as we examine the book of Ruth for the next few weeks. This is a beautiful story that often reads like a novel as we trace the loyalty of a Gentile woman named Ruth to her Israelite mother-in-law, Naomi. It is a redemption story in many ways and ultimately becomes a part of the genealogy of Jesus as Ruth is one of four Gentile women found in the lineage of Jesus in Matthew’s gospel. There is much to explore in this story and we hope you will join us as you claim the place God has prepared for you in YOUR own story of redemption!
