Life of Jacob Logo

Jacob was chosen by God, yet he struggled with trying to control his own life and circumstances. Rising from a dysfunctional family, through years of manipulation he created chaos for his own family. However, this chosen one of God ultimately gives rise to the twelve tribes of Israel and the future line of the Messiah. Join us this weekend as we follow Jacob’s journey from deceiver to dreamer.
