What is the Bible Study about?
Unravelled: What happens when our world falls apart? How do we press onward when our tightly-knit plans unravel into loose threads?
In our unravelling, sometimes life surprises us with unexpected joy, love, and hope— with a new beginning we couldn’t have imagined. This bible study series explores 12 stories of unravelled shame, identity, fear, grief, dreams, and expectations. These are stories where God meets us: unravelling our plans—and us—into something new.

Thank you to sanctifiedart.org for these materials.
