Women's Bible Study-Ruth

As we welcome a new year, we are happy to announce a new women’s Bible study. Ruth: loss, love & legacy by Kelly Minter will be our new study. “ Do you trust God to write happy endings? We all struggle through seasons of bitterness, tears, and loss, wondering if there could be a happy endings to our stories. The story of Ruth affirms that there is hope by the power and protection of God”. We will start this study on January 17 at 10:00 a.m. Everyone will need to purchase a book from Amazon for $21. (Amazon will not allow a group order for this book). If you have questions about the study or ordering your book, please contact Susie Crump (704-575-5531) or Jeannette Koch (704-500-3467). We look forward to great discussion and fellowship as we walk through the Word of God.
