Exodus

Out of Captivity.  Into the Wild.

To know the story of the Exodus is to know the story of our own lives: God draws us out of our captivity and into the promise of a new life.

 

This summer we will walk with Moses and the people of God through the Exodus journey: from captivity in Egypt, escape through the Red Sea, the journey in the wilderness, to the foot of Mount Sinai and into the Promised Land.  Along the way, we will learn of God’s unrelenting love for his people and the ultimate plan for redemption.
