 Passage: Ruth 4:1-22
The last chapter is the grand finale and the “happily ever after.” In it, Boaz and Ruth are married and give Naomi a happy, healthy grandson: Obed. Obed would become the grandfather of King David, which means that Ruth, a non-Israelite, was an ancestor of Jesus. At a time when people rarely married out-side their own community, and when genealogy was enormously important to establishing people’s identity, the introduction of a woman from Moab into David’s ancestry was a big deal.

 Passage: Ruth 3:1-18
In this chapter, Naomi gives Ruth advice on how to get Boaz to marry her. The women are aware that they cannot survive long term if Ruth doesn’t have a husband to support them; women could not work in this time period and culture. By the end of the chapter, Boaz is ready to marry Ruth, pending one legal detail. Ruth’s kindness to Naomi caught Boaz’s attention. Boaz’s kindness to Ruth caught Naomi’s attention. Now Naomi’s kindness in giving advice to Ruth will bring them all together as one family.

 Passage: Ruth 2:1-23
The book of Ruth tells the story of how a gentile woman was received into God’s Israelite family and became the great-grandmother of King David, one of the most beloved figures in the Jewish tradition. It’s themes include loss, loyalty, devotion, generosity, resourcefulness, acceptance, and new birth. This section introduces Boaz, who will later become Ruth’s husband. He takes notice of her, a woman from a foreign country, and immediately resolves to care for her. Do a simple activity to represent how Boaz was generous to someone from outside his community, and how God wants us to be generous to everyone we meet.

 Passage: Ruth 1:1-22
The book of Ruth tells the story of how a gentile woman was received into God’s Israelite family and became the great-grandmother of King David, one of the most beloved figures in the Jewish tradition. It’s themes include loss, loyalty, devotion, generosity, resourcefulness, acceptance, and new birth. Have fun exploring these themes with the kids over the next several weeks. Begin with the most beloved passage in Ruth, where she refuses to return to her own people but declares her entire loyalty and faithfulness to her mother-in-law, Naomi. Do a simple activity to represent how people need each other, and how God wants us to be in relationships.

 Passage: 1 Peter 5:1-14
The author of 1 Peter closes his letter with advice to church elders to lead with-out “lording it over” others, but instead being examples, and advice to younger church members to listen to the wisdom of their elders. This is just one more example of how church communities can remain functional and benefit from the input of all members. Kids are used to being told they are too young to participate in things. Many churches don’t even realize that they are sending the message in various ways that kids aren’t full participants in community life. Help kids recognize that everyone is important in the church, no matter what their age.

 Passage: 1 Peter 4:1-19
In this chapter of 1 Peter, the author challenges his readers to “be serious” about their prayers and “above all, maintain constant love for one another.” He puts forth the idea that if we are going to speak to each other, we should do so as if we were speaking God’s words. Not that we are God or know the mind of God, but knowing that God is loving and gentle, we can be sure that mean or harsh words are not of God, and therefore shouldn’t be spoken. Kids get the idea of “mean talk” from an early age, and know the power mean words can have to hurt people. Have them think about how loving God helps them to recognize mean words before they come out.
 Date: Sun, Jul 24, 2022       Preacher: Pastor Christina Martin      
 Passage: 1 Peter 3
1 Peter 3 continues to give advice about community living, and suffering for doing what is right. This chapter is rich with ideas like unity of spirit, sympathy, love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.
