Naomi, Ruth and Boaz - A Story of HESED love

Yesterday at Church we focused on the book of Ruth. We saw HESED love (the love that takes commitments seriously) through the examples of Naomi, Ruth and Boaz. Since we live in a post-commital society this story is almost shocking to us.

We learned that since God is Holy we should never approach Him casually. But because of what Chr...

God vs. gods

Yesterday we covered the first half of the book of Exodus. We focused on the story of Moses, the significance of the plagues and the reason Passover became the most important festival for the nation of Israel. It was great to hear from the students in the beginning of the service and also at the end during the Q&A time. We love our students and we want to make sure the...
