During those many days the king of Egypt died, and the people of Israel groaned because of their slavery and cried out for help. Their cry for rescue from slavery came up to God. And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. God saw the people of Israel—and God knew.
I am so excited about studying the story of God’s people in the book of Exodus with your student this semester. The book is full of so many exciting things that God does for his people that I know will grab the interest of our teenagers, but more importantly, it is our story of trusting God from slavery to trusting His promises.
We will spend the semester asking the Holy Spirit to show us our story in Exodus. If you consider the presence of God, that he hears us, he knows us, he knows where life is, and he has made promises concerning us and he has the power to do something about it, he is not powerless. His hands have never been and cannot be tied. He has the power to liberate and to deliver upon his promises, pulling us out of slavery and into his presence through the sacrifice and redemption of the blood of the Lamb.
I want to encourage you to read this email weekly and check our Partnering with Parents website for short simple ways to connect with your student after Life Group each week (you can click

Praying for you and your family!
