What we are learning

At Ruth House we are always learning more about who God is and who He says WE are, so that we can live our lives according to His great plan in a healthy way. We are blessed to have women from various churches come do Bible studies with us and we are currently studying Total Forgiveness by RT Kelly, Deeper by Debbie Alsdorf, and Breaking Free by Beth Moore. If you would like to join us or lead us in a study please let us know. We would LOVE to have you.

Volunteer Opportunities

If you would like to be a part of helping women to change their lives please consider mentoring/sponsoring a woman of Ruth  House.  “Naomi Women” are those who are willing to walk alongside us in our daily journey through life as we learn to live healthy, pleasing lives.  This can mean coming and spending time with us just hanging out and talking, taking us to the store or rides to meetings and appointments or whatever else you can think of.  For more information contact rrandallrebecca78@gmail.com
