(John 20:31) Through this study you will: - Deepen your relationship with Jesus by learning who He is, what He did, how He felt, and what is important to Him. -Change daily life as you learn to live like Jesus by following His teachings and example. - Delight in the eternal life God promises through the sacrifice and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ.

Peoria Christian High School Theater Inspired by the biblical story of Ruth, Horizons of Gold, A New Musical tells the story of Rose, a young Mexican migrant, abandoned and lost in turbulent 1930s California. She clings to Margaret Thomas, a Kansas farmwife displaced by the Dust Bowl. Together they grieve a lost family and search for home and healing in the midst of unrelenting hardships. Could John Bollen, the generous wheat farmer down the road, be a savior for them both? A powerful journey of the heart unfolds for three people who find their lives intertwined, each desperate to heal the past and embrace a new future.
