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. What follows are the humble attempts of Pastor Mike and some other trusted teachers to do this in a God-honoring way.

Exodus_sqrPastor Mike speaks from Exodus 33-34, the days following the golden cafe and broken stone tablets. The tent of meeting is found outside the Israelite camp. Why is God outside of the camp rather than in the center of it? Today’s text helps us understand the truth about God and our happiness. What is God’s best of this people? What does the Bible teach us about the Father’s desire for his children? This is addressed in today’s text.



The Golden Mistake

Exodus_sqrPastor Mike speaks on Exodus 32:1-33:6. Have you felt like your life got off to the right start but somewhere along the line it missed its mark and sizzled? What hope is there when we make the golden mistake that causes us to miss our trajectory. We have hope in the mediator who intercedes with God on our behalf just as Moses did when the Israelites reverted to old patterns and constructed a golden idol.



God uses brick makers and field workers

Exodus_sqrPastor Mike speaks on Exodus 31. God has given the specific instructions for building the worship tent called the Tabernacle, furnishings and priestly garments. But how are the Israelites suppose to do this without any training or skills in this type of work? And how does God prescribe their work schedule to unfold? We discover the encouraging truth that God enables people for his work in his way.




Are we waiting for Jesus or is He waiting for us?

Exodus_sqrCan you see God and live? 74 men did. But notice what they chose to describe. What is the good in waiting? Especially when the waiting goes on forever… Moses provides a picture of Jesus and an interesting statement speaks to Christ followers today. The study of the Bible book of Exodus continues with Pastor’s Mike sermon on Exodus 24.



God prepares the way

Exodus_sqrPastor Mike speaks on Exodus 23:20-33. Why don’t we experience the full and abundant things God has in store for us? Today’s text reveals some answers to this. When we recognize God’s message to Israel is for us today, our faith can be stirred and we can be motivated to persevere in hardship.
