      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

  • Called Out: God’s Response to Rebellion

    As we continue through Exodus, we arrived at an intriguing passage this Sunday. The Amalekites, a group with various ties to Israel, come and attack the Israelites. In response, Moses goes up on the hill and holds the staff of God, while Joshua goes and fights. In the end, the...

  • Called Out: Do You Trust Me?

    This past Sunday, we returned to the book of Exodus. When we had last left Israel, they were celebrating on the beach, praising God for His salvation and deliverance from Egypt. It’s not long before things begin to get difficult and the people turn quickly. There are three separate events...
