Cloud & Fire: God, Moses, and the Israelites in Exodus
The story told in Exodus is one of deliverance, covenant, love, and justice. It begins with God’s people, the children of Israel, enslaved in Egypt – and proceeds to tell how God called Moses to lead these people to freedom. When they escaped to the wilderness, God helped them to become a new community, bound by laws and promises. Over generations, the stories of Exodus became the core of Israel’s identity; Biblical writers and prophets called people to maintain their faith like people of old; and Jesus himself often referred to the teachings of Moses. Exodus has much to teach us – about the Bible and Biblical times, and about faith today.
Join us beginning August 27th for “Cloud and Fire,” our fall worship series on the book of Exodus. Pastor John will also begin a Pastor’s Bible Study on Sunday the 27th at 11:00am (Large Conference Room) and Monday the 28th at 2:15pm (at The Pointe) where we will read through Exodus together. Starting September 17th, our September and October Sunday School lessons (“Lead the Way” and “Are We There Yet”) will also focus on these stories.
