Faith Development at Morningside 

ADULT CLASS 

Van Jensen will continue taking us through a journey of seeking God in the comic books. 

CHILDREN 

Children will learn about Moses and explore powerful acts of God this month. In reading Exodus 13:17-14:31, children will learn that they can trust God to be with them when they are scared. They will talk about when they have felt God’s presence, perhaps through the love of a parent or friend. We will know that just as God has been with us in the past, God will be with us in the future.
