Sunday CREW December Teaching:
12/16: Teaching with Mr. Scott Bursese: In this session, we wrap up Joseph’s story and the Book of Genesis and see how God’s plan all along was to redeem His people through Jacob’s favored son. Joseph was about to make sense of the suffering he had endured, and his brothers were about to experience the beauty of forgiveness. And through Joseph and his brothers’ reunion, God was about to preserve His people. Joseph’s suffering was painful. The brothers’ sin was evil. But God was going to bring beauty from ashes to reveal His purposes. And in revealing this to Joseph and his family, God also reveals to us that He is a God who can do anything, even override evil with good.
12/23: Family Worship in Main Worship Service. No CREW Sunday School
12/30: Teaching with Mrs. Carmichael In this session we move from Genesis to Exodus and continue the story of Abraham’s family well after the days of Joseph. Jacob, his sons, and their families arrived in Egypt as welcomed guests generations before, but now the children of Israel were enslaved in Egypt. Through our study of the Book of Exodus, we will learn much about God’s character and nature: He is a mighty God, all-knowing and all-powerful, and yet, He is also close and personal. God heard the cries of His people in bondage, and He responded with compassion. He was attentive to His people and faithful to keep His promises. As God began His rescue, He revealed to the Israelites, the Egyptians, and to us that He is sovereign over all.
