Women’s Bible Study
Feb 7 @ 10:00 am – Feb 21 @ 11:30 am

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.

Cost of Poverty Experience
Feb 11 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am
The Cost of Poverty Experience (COPE) is a poverty simulation to help us break down our preconceived notions around poverty. In the span of 2.5 hours, you will live a month in the life of a low-income family and will experience some of the everyday struggles for people in our community living in poverty or struggling financially. You may step into the role of:
  • A single mother struggling to buy groceries for her family
  • A lonely senior citizen who much choose between rent and medication
  • An unemployed father of 4, struggling with addiction
By participating in this simulation, you will develop a deeper understanding of poverty and the frustrations that many families we serve are faced with on a daily basis.
