ECC-Evangelical Covenant Church
In the Beginning: Complexity, Potential, and Comfort
In Luke 24, right after his resurrection, Jesus meets two disciples on the road to Emmaus. They do not recognize Jesus and have not grasped what God has done in and through his suffering and death, to say nothing of his resurrection. Jesus then explains to them how all through Scripture, this has been God's plan. By doing so, Jesus has given us a new way to read Scripture--in light of his own life, death, and resurrection. Join us as we walk through the first 11 chapters of Genesis and ask how these passages point us to Christ. We worship together each Sunday morning at 10:30am on YouTube, on our Worship page (ecclife.net/worship), or in person.

As needs arise, you will receive an email and be able to sign-up for a specific date based on the need and your availability.

In the Beginning: Complexity, Potential, and Comfort
June 19, 2022
Second Sunday after Pentecost
Pastor Stacey Littlefield
Write your main take away from this week's sermon below:
A question to ponder.
Re-read Genesis 5.1-5. What do you hear, personally, in the way Seth's lineage is described? What difference do you think it makes that Adam was made in the image of God and Seth was made in the image of Adam?






A question to ponder.
Re-read Genesis 5.21-24. Do you hear or see anything in the description of Enoch's lineage that gives you hope or challenges you, personally? Why do you think the author has included the details about Enoch? Why do you think it was important that these details about Enoch's life--few as they are--have been preserved for us?






A question to ponder.
Re-read Genesis 5.28-32. Does anything stand out to you afresh? Was there something in the sermon that spoke to you about this? Or do you see something new?
