This week’s scripture tells what happens as the people of Israel begin their journey to freedom in the Promised Land. After initially (and reluctantly) agreeing to let them go, the Egyptians decide to pursue and defeat their former slaves. Pharaoh’s army traps the departing Hebrews against the waters of the sea. It appears that there is no way out for Moses and the people. Yet God does not forsake them. In the face of disaster and destruction, God leads them safely to the other side. Jonathan’s sermon is “Against All Odds,” and those who would like to read ahead can find the passage in Exodus 14:19-31.
At 10 a.m. we will be celebrating the baptism of Olivia Jean Reeves. She is the daughter of Kerry Garrison and Evan Reeves, and the granddaughter of church members Larry and Carolyn Garrison. Olivia’s Godparents are Brianne and Alex Turtletaub. We are glad to celebrate with their families on this special day.
See you in worship!
