How to Prepare for Sunday Nov. 3rd with The Crossing

On Fridays we post a guide for how to prepare for the upcoming Sunday service. It gives you a chance to read the Bible passage ahead of time, see the song list, and get your mind and heart ready. You can see some of the rationale here.

On Sunday Dave Cover continues our sermon series in Exodus with “The Purpose for my People” from Exodus 7:16. In 7:16, Yahweh God is telling Moses what he is to say to Pharaoh. God says, “Then say to him, ‘The LORD (He Is), the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to say to you: Let me people go, so that they may worship me in the wilderness.”

Yahweh is working to free his people from their slavery in Egypt. But for what? What comes next? This verse gives us a crucial answer that is true not just for the Israelites but for Jesus and us too. What does that purpose look like in our lives?

Dave will talk especially about how that vision motivates our current building project. Most of us will have seen and experienced the construction around the site. But lots of people have started coming to The Crossing since the project began and may not have an understanding of what we’re doing. And the rest of us will benefit from an update and having our vision renewed.
