Esther went from an orphan to a queen. Joseph went from a slave to being second only to the King in all the land of Egypt. They both had ups and downs in their lives. This is typical of most of our lives as well. God has a plan for each of us, which eventually unfolds in His time and manner. His plans and purposes surface at exactly the right time.

Esther and Joseph were just two of many Biblical characters who had things happen in their earlier lives that prepared them for the special purpose God had planned for them. This Bible study looks at Esther’s story, Joseph’s story, and then offers the opportunity to reflect on our own personal stories and consider how events in our lives have prepared us for the plan and purpose God has for our lives. 

All women of the congregation - and their friends - are invited to join us on Tuesday afternoons, beginning September 6, 1 - 2:30 pm for a time of fellowship and study. This group meets in the cafe.
