The Hymn of Preparation was "Give Me Jesus." Absolutely!

 

 

Pastor Steve continues his sermon series
on "From Egypt to Sinai: Slavery to Freedom,"
focusing on "Our Journey of Faith."
How do we get from Egypt to
The Promised Land?
"The one with the repentant heart can and
will move forward."

 

The path out of Egypt begins when we
recognize our issues or our past
in the bondage we experience
and change to be what Christ is calling us to be!

"We need to move from where we are to where God wants us to be."

Welcome back Choir! You have been missed!

 

The Lamb of God or Agnus Dei adorns the outside of our building to remind us of the innocence of our sacrificial lamb Jesus Christ. The Lamb of God is depicted as a lamb with a halo around His head. He is holding under His foreleg a flagpole, flying the banner of the cross. In John 1:29, when John the Baptist sees Jesus, he exclaims, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”
