Esther Bible Study
Throughout this 4 week study, youth will read the entire book of Esther. Your group will delve into the characters, events, and context of the book. Learning and formation will take place through the reading of scripture, creating a play or musical together, discussing tough questions in small groups, and experiencing various forms of prayer. Each week, the youth will be challenged to consider the question, “Where is God in this story, though unmentioned?”
