Exodus lessons for today

Starting September 10th we begin a sermon series on Moses and the Exodus. This story talks about slavery, infanticide, hearing God’s call, spiritual warfare, political intrigue, leadership. It also lays the  foundations of modern society including moral standards, and right worship. It also mirrors the redemption story as we later see it fulfilled in the birth, baptism, miracles and cross of Christ.

9/10 Slavery in Egypt  –  slavery is still a reality today

9/17 Call and confrontation  –  How do we know the voice of God?

9/24 IJM Sunday  –  Fighting systemic evil today

10/1 The ten plagues   –   Suffering and a just God

10/8 Passover  –   Christ prefigured in deliverance

10/15 Crossing the red sea  –  escaping the past

10/22 mana and fresh water  –  How God sustains us today

How to find us

COTW-Map

You can see our Church from the road but have to make a few turns to find us. When Lee Highway (Route 29) was widened we lost the front of our property and got a new street for entry. From Linton Hall road take Whitney, then right onto Old Linton Hall, left onto Charis Avenue, and right onto Logos. You will be able to park at the back of the building and walk around to the front door.

Welcome to Children’s Ministry at our Church! We are here to support families as you “train up your children in the way they should go”.
Lauren Coleman 
has been leading our Children’s ministry for 2 years. She has two small children and a background in Psychology and Education. Welcome Lauren

On Sundays, our 10:30 service has both Sunday School and nursery. Nursery is for ages 0-3 and parents may drop off children for the whole service or just for part of it. Quite a few parents enjoy letting their babies and toddlers experience worship at the beginning and communion at the end, but the choice is yours. Children in Pre-K through grade 5 leave service with their Sunday School teachers and return after the sermon and Peace. Currently, we are learning about the Gospels in our Discipleship, Jr. curriculum and the kids are having a blast as the learn Scripture. Don’t forget to join us after service so we can meet you and your kids!

From our children’s ministry….If your kids are growing out of some of their toys, we’d gladly take certain items for our nursery. We are in need of gently used play kitchen supplies and food, wooden puzzles, large cars and trucks, batteries for some of our light-up toys, games for the bigger kids, and books.”

Operation Christmas Child is just around the corner, please consider picking up a few extra school supplies as you prepare for a new year. Toys, games, crafts, and toiletries are welcome too!”

Protecting Gods Children class will be offered on September 24 after Service. This is mandatory for anyone working with children or teens and anyone in a leadership position in our congregation. Sign up sheet on the counter. Contact Lauren at kids@churchoftheword.net with questions
