Thursday night zoom study:  The Book of Ruth. Starting Thursday October 5th at 7:00 PM

We will continue the Thursday evening Bible theme starting October 5th at 7:00pm. Please sign-up in the narthex or call the church office at 541-779-1711 to register your intent to participate. Workbooks will be available in the church office, or for residents outside of Medford, the workbook can be ordered from Amazon books. Pick up your copy at the church or order it from Amazon: “Ruth workbook, God’s Amazing Love for You.”       ISBN-13:  978-1732633100

This study will be a five-week workbook study of the Old Testament Book of Ruth; a beautiful example of God’s love and sovereignty.  This will be presented in the Zoom format; popularized by our recent success. This study of Ruth will be moderated by Carl Hultquist and several different volunteer members of the group. As the Book of Ruth begins, you will see two women who were facing the worst days of their lives. They could not have known how God was setting the stage for their greatest blessings to come.
The Book of Ruth is about a fascinating journey of a courageous young, widowed, Moabite woman, Ruth, who, as a proselyte Jew, adopts the religious customs and beliefs of her Mother-in-Law, Naomi.
In this Bible Book of Ruth, we can see that we don’t need to be a perfect family to become a useful tool for God to use. Ruth’s story is one of loss, loyalty, love, family lineage … and hope! Since you love God and want His will for your life, you will relate to Ruth.

Adult Sunday school will resume Sundays at 9:45 AM starting September 18th.

The series will be called ‘Talk-Back’ and will focus on Murray’s sermon topics and Scripture readings of each service. The goal is to connect our lives with what the Bible says to each of us. Pastor Murray will lead the first class.

Murray’s new sermon series is titled “Spirituality in the Practice of Everyday Living”.

Murray taught a class “Reading Revelation Responsibly” April 14-May 26, 2021.

Videos and other materials for that class have been archived: archived materials for the class.
