YOUNG COUPLES, NO KIDS – Adam Beard (South Balcony)

Exodus Exodus tells of God fulfilling His promise to Abraham by multiplying Abraham’s descendants into a great nation, delivering them from slavery in Egypt, leading them to the Promised Land, and then binding them to himself with a covenant at Mount Sinai. Moses, under the direct command of God and as leader of Israel, received the Ten Commandments from God, along with other laws governing Israel’s life and worship. He also led the nation in the building of the tabernacle, a place where God’s presence dwelled among His people and where they made sacrifices for sin. Join us this quarter as we take an extensive look at the book of Exodus exploring the history, characters, and the amazing power of God.

PRESCHOOL FAMILIES & COLLEGE/YOUNG PRO  (Room 206A) Jason Helton, Kevin Barnes, Bryan LeMasters
Exodus This quarter the CYP and Pre-school families will have a combined class on Sundays. We will be studying the book of Exodus together. Exodus shows us the remarkable journey of God leading Israel out of Egyptian bondage and into a covenant relationship with Him as He prepares them to enter the Promised Land. Much of the New Testament refers to the events and people found in Exodus. It also gives us insight into who our God is and how he relates to and cares for His people. Join us as we study the Exodus of God’s people.

PRIMARY FAMILIES – Jesse Tubbs & Mike Dozier (Room 201A)

Exodus: The Glorious God “And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight…” – Exodus 3:3.  Of course, most of you will recognize these words from Exodus as God declares Himself in a myriad of wonderful ways.  Exodus has many examples of God’s marvelous glory on display. Moses is particularly anxious as God uses him to lead the Hebrew people.  Wanting reassurance of God’s abiding grace, Moses pleads – “Show me your glory.” – Exodus 33:18.  To which God grants a special vision of His marvelous majesty. Using examples like these, our study will develop lessons of insight into God’s revealing of Himself.

TEEN FAMILIES – David Hargett (Madison Room) Exodus: Lessons as You Leave
The book of Exodus is one of those books that we learn about in Sunday school when we learn all about Moses, his time in the desert, leading the children of Israel out of captivity, and the parting of the Red Sea. This is many times the extent of our understanding of the book, but what if there was more to the book than that?  The nation of Israel was enslaved by the Egyptians.  Bearing the impossible weight of abuse and torture, they longed for deliverance.  Today, we are in danger of being enslaved by sin.  We can be crippled by heavy loads of anxiety, fear, lust, pride, or whatever sin is playing host in our life, but you can make a getaway just like the nation of Israel. The study this quarter is about leaving. Leaving behind sin, leaving behind burdens you carry, burdens which enslave us and keep us from God’s best.  Let’s begin our exodus and “Therefore…let us lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely” Hebrews 12:1

EMPTY NESTERS – Mark Kelly (Room 200A)

Exodus The story of Jesus is the only story greater than the story of the Exodus!  Like Jesus, the Exodus story is real.  For Christians it is full of parallelism, symbolism, types and antitypes.  It is full of suffering, celebration, faithlessness, faith building events, leadership, fellowship, commitment, rejection, unity, disunity, worship, sin, consequences, hope, and so much more.  Exodus is a literal smorgasbord of Biblical applications for us today.  Our study will be a feast so come hungry!

MATURE SINGLES – Joe Harless (Room 112A)

Exodus: God Revealed God’s personality is revealed in His never ending love, His constant mercy and grace, His patience, His nurturing nature, and desire for relationship. We get a glimpse of this personality in the pages of the Exodus. The story of the Israelites as written by Moses carries us on a “journey” with God revealing Himself to His people and ultimately to all throughout the ages. Join in as we look into these revelations and apply them to our understanding of God and His will for us.

YOUNG AT HEART – Larry Jones (Annex)                                                                                              
Exodus The Book of Exodus reveals a God who saves His people.  Exodus sets before us the biblical theme of redemption as we see Jehovah deliver the Israelites from Egyptian slavery.  God is actively involved in the lives of His people.  He resides among them.  He saves them, however, in His own way, in His own time, and for His own glory. As we study Exodus, we will come to understand that God is still the God who saves His people…from the slavery of sin.  God teaches us in the Book of Exodus that in the most difficult of times He can be trusted.


Exodus 14:21 “And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.” The book of Exodus is a pivotal part of the story, God’s story, of choosing a people for His purpose.  It is a telling of the events of the past and of future plans as God establishes and directs His people and continues in the keeping of His promise to Abraham, and to all nations, through the children of Israel.  In this class we’ll open the Bible and study the book of Exodus together and learn of God, His people, and His plan.
