    10/04/2018 Duração: 23min

    [NOTE: ONLY PART OF THIS WAS RECORDED] Charles Anderson, Lead Pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis, was our guest speaker. Continuing with our Exodus theme of Life in the Wilderness Places, we looked at a passage from Hebrews that deals with similar themes.

    "The Waiting is The Hardest Part" (Exodus 32:1-20)

    03/04/2018 Duração: 39min

    Nobody likes waiting. This week we saw that this was especially true of the Israelites as they waited at the foot of Mt. Sinai. However, we also saw in this account that God is gracious with our impatience.

  • The Ten Commandments: Our Guide in the Wilderness (Exodus 19:1-12, 20:1-17)

    "The Ten Commandments: Our Guide in the Wilderness" (Exodus 19:1-12, 20:1-17)

    27/03/2018 Duração: 33min

    During this special Holy Week Large Group we looked at the Ten Commandments. We saw that if we understand them in their proper context and their true purpose, they are a beautiful guide for life in the wilderness. Further, they point us to our beautiful savior and his all-sufficiency.

  • Grumbling  Provision (Exodus 16:1-36)

    "Grumbling & Provision" (Exodus 16:1-36)

    06/03/2018 Duração: 36min

    This week we looked at the Israelites' grumbling in the desert as they faced hunger. The Lord graciously provided for their needs, yet they didn't fully trust that he would, so they went against his command. Like the Israelites, we too often doubt that God will keep his promises and go outside his will to meet our need for control.

  • When God Puts Your Back Against the Wall (Exodus 14:1-31)

    "When God Puts Your Back Against the Wall" (Exodus 14:1-31)

    27/02/2018 Duração: 40min

    This week we looked at the account of Israel at the Red Sea. As we looked at Israel in a desperate situation, we considered ourselves when we are in similar situations. Like Israel, we can respond in fear or trust.

  • The God Who Guides Us (Exodus 13:17-22)

    "The God Who Guides Us" (Exodus 13:17-22)

    20/02/2018 Duração: 35min

    This week we looked at the beginning of the Israelites' journey out of Egypt. We saw many parallels to our own journeys, and how God is present with us even as he at times leads us down the desert road.

  • The Blood of the Lamb (Exodus 12:1-32)

    "The Blood of the Lamb" (Exodus 12:1-32)

    13/02/2018 Duração: 38min

    This week we looked at the deeply significant account of the passover of the first born Israelites. We examined what the passover means, the reality that we need to be passed over, and how we can be passed over.

  • The Plagues, Sin,  Salvation (Exodus 9:13-17)

    "The Plagues, Sin, & Salvation" (Exodus 9:13-17)

    06/02/2018 Duração: 36min

    This week we looked at the odd & challenging account of the plagues in Egypt. These unique events have much to teach us about the nature of sin and its destruction as well God's salvation and the healing it brings.

  • The King of Kings (Exodus 7:1-13)

    "The King of Kings" (Exodus 7:1-13)

    30/01/2018 Duração: 37min

    This week we looked at a passage that says "The Lord hardened Pharaoh's heart." It forces us to ask some tough questions about God's sovereignty and human responsibility. In it we saw some beautiful realities about who God is and how he uses his sovereign power.

  • Fear  Insecurity (Exodus 4:1-17)

    "Fear & Insecurity" (Exodus 4:1-17)

    23/01/2018 Duração: 39min

    This week we continued to look at Moses' encounter with God at the Burning Bush. However, this week we see Moses begin to turn inward, fearful, and insecure in response to God's call. We considered some of our biggest reasons for fear and how God provides help in this.

  • The God Who Calls (Exodus 3:1-22)

    "The God Who Calls" (Exodus 3:1-22)

    16/01/2018 Duração: 42min

    This week we looked at the famous account of Moses and the burning bush. We asked the question, how do we respond to God's call in our lives? We should respond by remembering who is this God who calls ... that he's personal, covenant-keeping, and all powerful.
