Thank you for joining us for worship this weekend.
Today, we continue our message series titled THE LIFE. We are working our way through the book of Genesis, and today we are confronted with a question in the text;
"How big is our God?"
Today we will see what Jacob's fears and the expectations of Joseph's brothers say their faith in and understanding of God and God's grace. We will close with a reminder of how great our God, His promise, and provision for us truly are.
I pray that your participation in today's worship helps you move closer to Jesus and reveals more of his plan for your life.

Take it Home:
We talk about embracing a "new normal" when life gets difficult. When life is good, being content isn’t all that difficult. But when our circumstances are tough, it’s another story. What resources do you find in the following passages that can help you cope with, handle or even grow through a hard season in life?
The Bible gives us windows into the lives of many people who experienced great pain, hardship or loss. Read the following Scriptures and take a look at how each person responded to their situation. Pay attention to what they learned or taught as a result of their trials and jot down any observations.
Paul: 2 Corinthians 11:16-33
David: Psalm 27:1-14
Peter: 1 Peter 4:12-19
How is Paul’s perspective in 2 Corinthians 1:3-11 contrary to how most of us would normally think when facing physical or emotional challenges?
Understanding who God is and how he is personally engaged in our lives is important when learning to embrace the pain and grief that comes with a "new normal". Use Psalm 33:12-22 as a prayer guide to help you thank God for who he is, how he cares for you, and how he gives hope to all of us who commit our lives to him.
