Kirk of Kildaire

Welcome to Faith Quest

Moses, the Plagues, and Passover

God keeps Godís promises, no matter how hopeless things seem!† In this story about Moses and the plagues, God takes care of the Israelites with a mighty hand. In our Faith Quest workshops, we learn that God is always with us.† As our memory verse reminds us, nothing can separate us from God's love.

†God sends Moses to Egypt to free the Israelites from slavery.† In order to convince the Pharaoh to let the Israelite people go, God gives Moses certain powers and sends the plagues to demonstrate to everyone God's mighty power.† The final plague comes with the ďAngel of DeathĒ who "passes over" Israelite homes that are marked with the blood of a lamb.† Finally, Pharaoh agrees to let the Israelite people go.† Jewish people today celebrate Passover to remember God's promise to rescue them from slavery in Egypt.† God promised to deliver the Jewish people from slavery and God used Moses to do it.†

Our memory verse is Romans 8:39b

"Nothing in all creation can separate us from God's love for us in Christ Jesus our Lord!"
