News & Notes

Sunday School Preview
Following ten terrible plagues, Pharaoh relents and releases the Israelites to worship in the wilderness. Realizing the Israelites have no intention of returning, Pharaoh’s army pursues the runaways. Caught between Pharaoh’s charioteers and the waters of the Red Sea, the people cry out to God. Moses stretches his hand over the sea as God parts the waters, enabling the people to pass through the sea on dry ground. As Egypt’s army attempts to follow, the sea closes in over them, so not one survives. As we read Exodus 14 and The Nature of the Sacrament of the Altar from Luther’s Small Catechism, we will reflect on how God protects us from our enemies today.
