The Weekly Bible Study gathers this Wednesday at 11 a.m. in the Parkins Room. During Easter we’re studying the book of Ruth, an idealized story of what life would look like if God’s people treated each other with His loving-kindness—insiders and outsiders alike. A key understanding in Ruth is that God uses these acts of the loving-kindness of people to demonstrate that which God gives to all, whether they realize it or not. All are welcome!
