You can follow the sermons as we move through the Bible. The continual challenge Pastor Mike faces as he prepares to preach is two-fold: First, he must accurately discern the original author’s message for his (or her) audience; Second, he must effectively apply it to the lives and situations of the Everett Family Church family.

The study of the Bible book of Exodus continues with Pastor’s Mike sermon on Exodus 24.

Maintaining mountaintop intimacy with God

Exodus_sqrPastor Mike moves into Exodus chapter 19 in this sermon, “Maintaining mountaintop intimacy with God.” Israel has left Egypt and God has led them in a less than direct route to the Promised Land of Canaan. He has brought them to this place called Horeb – a very sacred place in the history of the Jewish people. The following chapter is the delivering of the Ten Commandments. So what happens just before this momentous event? And what is significant about God’s appearance over Mount Sinai. It has everything to do with God’s desire to be with his people.
