Call of Moses The Woman at the Well

First - Fifth Grades: Great job, everyone, making all of those bricks in January! You are expert brick makers!! We will be using them to build a well this month as we study the story of The Woman at the Well found in John 4:4-30, 39-42. Practice looking this story up in your Bible at home. This story is Jesus' longest recorded dialogue in the Bible! It's also the first time Jesus reveals he is the Messiah! What is living water? Why was it counter-cultural for Jesus to be talking to a woman in Samaria? What is counter-cultural anyway? What do you thirst for? How did the woman respond to Jesus? How do you respond to Jesus? Come and explore this great story of God’s acceptance, love, and forgiveness for all people!
