• Sovereign Suffering

      This past Sunday, we stepped into some deep water as we engaged the topic of Sovereign Suffering. We looked at two different texts, 1 Peter 4 and Psalm 10 in helping us to see the biblical perspective on suffering and a biblical response to suffering. Starting in 1 Peter...

  • Called Out: Exodus Remix

        This past Sunday, we took a day to review the entirety of the book of Exodus. We focused our attention around some of the major themes that emerge throughout the book and how they connect to our lives today. All of this is centered around the idea that...

  • Called Out: Missional Living

    We’ve all been there. Whether we’re asking the question or attempting to answer it, we’ve all heard the question, “what is God’s will for my life?” Usually what we have in mind is a lot of specifics that we want answered; but in a broader sense, it’s not that difficult:...

  • Called Out: From Rebellion to Obedience

    From The Desk of Brian LeVie: The idea of a covenant in our society today, may seem a bit strange and outdated. Even when the term is used in a modern context, a covenant is thought of as a type of legal contract, rather than a deeply personal and binding...

  • Called Out: God’s Merciful Commitment

      If you have ever found yourself on the wrong end of a failed commitment, then you have a sense of where God is coming from in Exodus 34. Israel has faithlessly responded to God’s kind commitment. Yet, God is going to choose to respond by giving Israel another chance...

  • Called Out: God’s Distinctive Presence

      Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you realize someone is missing? Maybe you’ve noticed a friend slipped away, a family member left or co-worker is no longer around. What becomes clear is that person is absent. Would you notice if God was absent? Would it be...

  • Called Out: Forgetting God

      If you’re like me, there’s been a point in your time where you’ve forgotten something important…or maybe multiple points in time. But is it possible that we could forget God? It sounds outlandish, and yet that’s exactly what happened with the people of Israel in Exodus 32. God pursues...

  • Called Out: God’s Work and God’s Rest

      On Sunday, March 25, 2018, we looked at the final part of Moses’ time on the mountain with God. In Exodus 31, we see two distinct aspects of God’s engagement with Moses that center around work and rest. What we see in the text is In His goodness, God...

  • Called Out: The Way into God’s Presence

      I don’t know about you, but I felt like last Sunday was a little bit like taking a drink out of a fire hydrant! There was so much real estate that we covered; but hopefully you left with a strong sense in examining the tabernacle and the priests and...

  • Called Out: God’s Rules for His People Part 2

      Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you’re thinking to yourself, “What does this have to do with me?” This is often the sentiment and feeling that we have when we read through texts like Exodus 20:22-23:33. This section, referred to as the Book of the Covenant,...
