IN REFLECTION

On Sunday we surveyed the reunion of Joseph and Jacob in Genesis 45-47 as the chosen family made their third and final trip to Egypt. When we see God's faithfulness proven, it should intensify our desire for and confidence in the fulfillment of promises in the future. Let's allow our desires and expectations and hopes to be shaped by God's promises, and let's embrace our place in His story as we walk by faith.

Listen to "Promises Kept and Hope For"

PREPARING TO HEAR

On Sunday we will be hearing from Pastor Roger Johansen (missionary to Brazil from Countryside Baptist Church). Please pray for him as he prepares to minister to us this week, and let's pray that our hearts would be open and hungry for the truth of scripture. Please pray with me for unbelievers who will be in our midst, that their hearts would be awakened to the glory of Christ that they might believe.

PREPARING TO SING

Below are the songs we will singing together on Sunday. Use this as a resource to learn unfamiliar songs, to meditate on Christ-centered truth throughout the week, and teach your children songs that will fill their minds and shape their hearts
