AIM: The aim of ‘The Story of Ruth’ Childrens Church Teaching Series is to help children read through and understand the story of Ruth and what they can learn from both Ruth and Boaz within the Word.
This teaching series includes PowerPoint images, game ideas and activities that will help your children to put themselves in the shoes of those people in the bible. Children will think about how they would feel if they were Ruth or Boaz and what it would mean for them to follow God if they were in this situation. Children will also search the scriptures as they think about how each passage fits into the context of the whole Bible.
