More About the Program Curriculum
Join Sheba the Camel and friends as we follow Ruth and Naomi’s journey from Moab to Bethlehem. Along the way, we’ll learn all about how God always keeps His promises! Five days of Christ-centered activities will help kids see that God is always faithful.

Key Verses spoken by Ruth to her mother-in-law Naomi after her husband's death:

“And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me”

- Book of Ruth, Chapter 1 verses 16-17, King James Bible, showing Ruth was fiercely faithful.

Bible Stories that will be part of our Vacation Bible School:
• Day 1: Naomi and Elimelech Leave for Moab
• Day 2: Ruth Marries and Her Husband Elimelech Dies
• Day 3: Ruth stays faithful to Naomi and they move to Bethlehem together
• Day 4: Ruth Sleeps at Boaz’s Feet, as instructed by her mother-in-law Naomi
• Day 5: Ruth Marries Boaz

For you history buffs: when FDR sent Harry Hopkins to England in England's darkest hour in 1940, and FDR said England should regard Harry Hopkins as if he were FDR himself, Harry referred to the Book of Ruth in vowing American support for England in WW2. He quoted part of the key verses shown above. We were "fiercely faithful" to England and defended democracy when it mattered most, during England's darkest hour when many people thought England would fall. When WW2 began America had a very small army, smaller than Belgium, number 18 in the world, so it wasn't certain that we would succeed in helping England, but we did.
