Ruth 3:1-4

1Then Naomi her mother in law said unto her, My daughter, shall I not seek rest for thee, that it may be well with thee? 2And now is not Boaz of our kindred, with whose maidens thou wast? Behold, he winnoweth barley to night in the threshingfloor. 3Wash thyself therefore, and anoint thee, and put thy raiment upon thee, and get thee down to the floor: but make not thyself known unto the man, until he shall have done eating and drinking. 4And it shall be, when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and uncover his feet, and lay thee down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt do. (KJV)

Ruth 4:13-17

13So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife: and when he went in unto her, the LORD gave her conception, and she bare a son. 14And the women said unto Naomi, Blessed be the LORD, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel. 15And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him. 16And Naomi took the child, and laid it in her bosom, and became nurse unto it. 17And the women her neighbours gave it a name, saying, There is a son born to Naomi; and they called his name Obed: he is the father of Jesse, the father of David. (KJV)

Adult Sunday School

The Adult Education class meets on Sunday mornings at 10:15, following the worship service. They are using a new study book from the Interpretation Bible Studies series from Westminster John Knox Books. It is an 8-week study of the Acts of the Apostles. The topics include the history of very early church development (known as “The Way”), the work of the Apostles among Jews and gentiles, and incredible stories of the Apostle Paul spreading the Gospel and beginning community churches throughout the Mediterranean. It is a powerful introduction to the meaning of discipleship and what God and Jesus call us to do in the world. Study books are available. We hope to fill the Founders’ Room with people interested in a Bible Study for the fall. Childcare is available.
