Bible Study: The Book of Ruth

Cornerstone of Hope is excited to offer a new six-week Bible study focusing on the Book of Ruth. In this Bible study, we will walk with grievers through this incredibly profound story. We will humbly approach the Word of God, seeking to become more aware of His love so that we may grow in faith and experience the consolation of Him, Whom is the Source of our being, our peace, and our hope.

Monday Evenings from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
June 17 - July 22, 2024
Cornerstone of Hope, Independence

Cost: $20 

Dinner will be served at 6:00 P.M. followed by Bible Study at 6:30 P.M. No prior familiarity with the Book of Ruth is necessary. No materials are needed except a writing utensil. Study guides will be provided and will include the text of the bible passages, but attendees are welcome and encouraged to bring their own bibles. Having more than one translation is always helpful.


The Book of Ruth is a story that starts with tremendous loss and ends with tremendous hope. It illustrates how God’s Providence is not always as obvious as the parting of the Red Sea or the transformation of water to wine. The Book of Ruth reminds us that even when His action in human events is subtle, God is still working through us, still present with us, and still active in us.
