Manna and Mercy Curriculum

We are so excited about using this curriculum, Manna and Mercy, for our life together over the new few months.  Manna and Mercy is a graphic novel of the Bible around the theme of food and forgiveness. Each week, before cell group, we’ll all read through a chapter of Manna Mercy (Each chapter is 3-4 pages)

On this page you will find links to the week’s worship videos and discussion questions. We will also provide more resources from the Manna and Mercy website which you can check out for further study.

Each week you can find the week’s videos and discussion questions here so you can catch up on something you missed or rewatch the videos for the week.
