Women’s Small Group Study
Set in the midst of one of the most corrupt eras of Israelite history, Ruth is a story about three compelling characters. Naomi is an elderly widow who has lost everything and returns to her homeland empty and bitter hoping simply to survive. Ruth is Naomi’s young daughter-in-law, also a widow, and a foreigner, who at great personal cost refuses to let Naomi face the future alone. Boaz is the local patriarch—a man of wealth and influence who in this epic tale is given the opportunity to do the right thing, even though the right thing might not be the obvious thing. In The Epic of Eden: Ruth, Dr. Sandra Richter makes each of these characters come alive. Participants in this study—young and old, men and women, churched and unchurched—will be challenged as they see themselves in these characters and find themselves faced with many of the same questions and challenges. Here is real life, lived out by real people with real fears, real struggles, real hope, and real faith. For information contact either Sally Koon or Loraine Zielinski.
J.O.Y. (Just Older Youth) is a group of people aged 55 and up. We meet for fellowship at noon on the second Tuesday of the month. The group enjoys a variety of activities: trying different restaurants, potlucks, concerts, museums or other suggested venues. In the past, we have visited Interlochen, Frankfort, Ludington, and Grand Rapids, car-pooling for transportation. Occasionally, the date is changed to coincide with an interesting event. Contact Phyllis Greve through our church office at 723-6219 if you'd like to participate!
Every 4th Saturday, a group of men get together at the Bungalow Inn at 8:00 a.m. for food, fun and fellowship. A short devotional and a prayer are given as the group waits for food. Sixteen to twenty men, from both services, young men, and young-at-heart men join for this opportunity to know each other better. We talk, joke, laugh, and eat together for about an hour. George and Jim call the list of thirty men with a reminder the day before. A warm invitation is extended to all men. No reservations are necessary. If you wish to be on the call list, contact George or Jim
