The book of Ruth is a story of God’s providence. It deals with ground-level matters of the heart— family, marriage, grief, transition, redemption—while highlighting God’s faithfulness to individuals, families, and generations. In this 10-week reading plan, we will read Ruth’s story together, watching as God weaves Ruth into His bigger story, and into the very lineage of Christ. Confident in God’s goodness and plan, we can look at the genealogies of the past and rejoice. And we can look forward to the future without fear.
"Prophets in the Old Testament were men who spoke for God. Over 100 times in the historical and prophetical books of the Old Testament we read that, "the word of the Lord came" to a prophet. This ten-session study dives into the challenging prophetical books of Isaiah through Malachi with the aim of understanding not only what God had to say to his people through these prophets in their own day, but also what he has to say to his people today. Readers discover that we struggle with the same sins, we’re subject to the same judgment, and we await the same Savior."

Our desire is for women to connect in a deep ways on a frequent basis- not just at an annual gathering. In our own lives, some of the sweetest times of authentic connections happen at the kitchen table- over a simple meal- wrestling with essential questions of faith and life.
This isn't some totally new idea that we dreamed up. It has been modeled for us before in Acts 2:46, which says:
"They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts."
That’s where IF:Table was born. Out of a shared deep need for all of us to continue to engage and to be encouraged in the deeper things of God- in your home- at your table.
