Welcome To E3!
Good Morning! We hope had good week and are enjoying your weekend!

This weekend we’re going to hear how God healed His people of deadly snake venom by lifting up a bronze snake. It’s a bizarre story, right? But this bizarre story gives an incredible picture of how God healed us of sin by lifting up His Son. We will learn to think about and understand the mercy of God in a whole new way! 
 
When it’s time to begin, start your morning of worship by watching the short lesson video and then sing along with this weeks worship songs.
Big Idea: God is merciful and has lifted His Son upon a cross so that we might be saved from death.
Memory Verse: “Moses lifted up the snake in the desert. In the same way, the Son of Man must also be lifted up. Then everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”
John 3:14-15 (NIrV)

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take you deeper into the lesson:
·    Family activities guide
·    Coloring page
·   JOURNAL IT!  After hearing today’s story, what do you want to say to God? Write it down.
·    DRAW IT! What can you do to live life God’s way? Draw a picture of it.
We can forget sometimes just how simple the good news of Jesus is. The people of Israel had only to look at the bronze snake to find healing. We need only to look to the Savior who was lifted up on the cross for us. Look to Him this week.
