Spend your first 5 minutes with God

Our Current Study

Ruth: Finding God Faithful When You Feel Insecure and Uncertain

Join us for a free five-week study in the First 5 app, starting March 6.

The book of Ruth has it all: tragedy, a love story, adversity and … *spoiler alert* … a happy ending.

It’s like your favorite novel or movie. You get caught up in the plot, attached to the characters, and can’t wait to see how it turns out.

But perhaps the most striking aspect of the book of Ruth is how very human it is. The story opens with two women who faced an uncertain future and unavoidable struggles. Just like us, they had to navigate the challenges of everyday life, while wondering if the Lord cared about what they were experiencing. In their most trying moments, they couldn’t see God working behind the scenes. But as we read their story in this study, we learn He was there all along. And we can live with that same assurance for our lives as well.
