The dining room and kitchen are also on the main floor where buffet style meals are prepared and served. Special diets can be accommodated with advance notice. Conference and meeting rooms on the lower level are accessible by stairs or elevator. All areas have great views of the woods surrounding the building. WHAT TO BRING?? Your favorite Bible, pen and paper. A photo of your grandmother(s). A brief bio of a grandmother to share. Your curiosity about “Matthew’s Women”.

Learning from the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy of Jesus

Family stories shape our sense of identity. Matthew begins his gospel with a list of Jesus’ ancestors. In that list we find the names of some rather unusual women — Jesus’ grandmothers.
They are:
Tamar
Rahab
Ruth
Bathsheba
Mary, Jesus’ mother

Why are these women in the list? What does their inclusion say about the coming Messiah? What might Matthew be teaching us through their stories?
