A Sacred Journey in Exodus to God’s Amazing Love
by Catherine Martin
TAUGHT BY Anna Clagett, Melanie Adent & Lynn Possing
It is one thing to talk about the greatness of God’s love, but quite another to experience His love firsthand in your own life. When we begin to grasp how passionately God loves us, our passion for Him grows as well. Journey with the new nation of Israel as God rescues them from slavery in Egypt and takes care of them through the desert years. Learn from the story of Exodus why all our comfort in deliverance is not our knowing God, but our being known by Him.
Every Tuesday morning in Room 130. $25. Email Sharon Allen or call her at 425-882-1477 for more information.
I am excited to be following the Israelites from Egypt to the Promised Land with you this year. There is so much to learn about the mercy and holiness of God and about the deep love he has for his people in this Old Testament narrative. I am so thankful for the reminder in Exodus that God is faithful even when his people are not. ~ Anna
I’ve always loved the Old Testament! If a picture paints a thousand words………then a story brings a character to life. Moses, Pharaoh and the Israelites are very interesting characters, but the real star of the show is Yahweh himself. In Exodus, He made himself known to them – and to us. Exodus is packed with history and drama, heroes and villains, heartbreak and dramatic rescues. But perhaps best of all, it is a clear picture of the heart of God. ~ Lynn
Life is a journey and within it are smaller journeys, some short and easy, some long and difficult. Exodus details the journey God calls the Israelites to make as He rescues them out of the land of Egypt and out of slavery. As with some of our own journeys, there would be initial excitement, followed by difficulty, doubt and discovery. The Israelites would have to decide: Is God trustworthy?
Join Anna, Lynn and me as we follow the Israelites’ journey to learn about God’s character and ways, strengthening our own trust in God as He guides us, leads us and provides for us through our individual journeys.
I look forward to the time of growth we will experience together as we study God’s word. See you all soon! ~ Melanie
