Thanks for joining us on this journey through the book of Exodus!
We are excited to walk through this foundational book as a church, reading and reflecting on what God has done in the past as we anticipate the coming of Easter. Just as God leads the Israelites out of Egypt into physical freedom, so too does Jesus lead us out of darkness into His glorious light.
This blog will offer reflections and teaching from Riverwood leaders as they read through Exodus, with a comment section for you to add your voice to the conversation. You can also share what you are reading and learning on social media, using the hashtag #40daysoffreedom
