Moses

Galilee’s worship series for Lent is called “Moses.” It is about the Old Testament prophet who is our great forerunner in faith and it is based on a book by Adam Hamilton.

Sermons on themes from the life of Moses will be supplemented by a Moses small group led on Sundays by Pam Bentley, Director of Family Ministries, at the 10:15 Grow Hour. Also, every Wednesday at noon during Lent, there will be a special “Midpoint” communion service in Galilee’s sanctuary.
