The word hospitality brings to mind tables filled with cookies and pots of good coffee.

Offering food to friends is a wonderful ministry indeed, but the biblical concept of hospitality is much deeper and more significant. In this nine session LifeGuide® Bible Study, Patty Pell you'll discover the Old Testament call to hospitality as the distinguishing feature of those who are in relationship with God, the outward-focused expression of the grace and provision that one has received from God. In the New Testament the extension of life, provision and protection is expanded as Jesus unpacks image after image of the kingdom of God in the language of host and guests.

Come and discover God's call to hospitality.
