Running From God? Studies in Ruth and Jonah with Pastor Aaron Scott:
Come join us as we explore eight mighty chapters in the Old Testament in the books of Jonah and Ruth. Explore the work of the Hound of Heaven as He pursues a stubborn Jonah and a hard-hearted and bitter Naomi. We, like Jonah and Naomi, may try to turn from God or even run from Him, but He is at work in us even in our fear and bitterness. He pursues us when we least expect and least deserve it. Our God is a God of grace and a faithful lover of His children. BEWARE: This is not a lecture. Participants are encouraged to PARTICIPATE! Come see how the Gospel can change us all from the inside out.
If you would like to learn more about the dynamics of domestic abuse and how to support survivors, join Pastor Shane for this fall class. Abuse is a corruption of God’s gracious design for relationships and Scripture condemns it in the strongest possible terms. But God offers hope and healing to everyone who comes to Him. This class will cover some of the material used to train mentors for the Refuge support group that extends God’s grace to survivors of physical, verbal and emotional abuse.
