The lives of two women in the Bible are striking examples of the moving of the hand of God to accomplish His will. One lived before the great Kingdom of Israel was ever formed; the other lived after the kingdom had been destroyed. But the lives of both proved to be of monumental significance to the Jewish nation and the plan of God. They also provide instruction and encouragement for us today as we seek the will of God for our own lives.

God’s Intelligent Design
As believers, we know that “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Others in our culture believe differently. Instead of believing in an all-powerful Creator, they put their faith in time and chance. Many in the scientific community have started to question the plausibility of an accidental universe and have begun to look toward an intelligent cause. We will look at the scientific discoveries that are moving many toward a truly intelligent First Cause.
We live in a world that has seen remarkable scientific discoveries of the past 100 years. There are many things today that are possible that were not possible just a few short years ago including reproductive technologies, genetic engineering and life altering treatments. Along with these new possibilities come questions regarding what is ethically, morally and Biblically acceptable. Join us as we turn to Scripture to see how it can direct us regarding these advances in science, medicine and technology.
