We all struggle through seasons of bitterness, tears, and loss, wondering if there could ever be a happy ending to our stories. The story of Ruth affirms that yes, there is hope for you, and it is found in the power and protection of a sovereign God who never takes His eyes off you for even a moment. Together, we’ll explore Ruth’s journey of unbearable loss, redeeming love, and divine legacy.
Workbooks are available for $18, but are not required. Childcare available for those preschool and under with reservation.
If you or someone you know is going through a season of grief, education and support is available. The invitation is open and all are welcome to this supportive community.
*Please note, there will be no group on January 24th.
Childcare reimbursement will be available for those that need it.
The cost of the class is $30 and includes all books/materials necessary to complete this course.
