Sermons

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.

One Bloody Night – The Passover Exodus

Posted December 14th, 2014 in Sermons

Exodus_sqrPastor Mike speaks on the monumental salvation event for the Israelites in the Old Testament and why this is the defining moment of Christians today. If there is any doubt about what God’s salvation means for today it is pictured in vivid detail in Exodus chapter 12. In remembering this event God’s people were instructed on how to teach their children and future generations of God’s salvation through the feast of unleavened bread. While they may appear to be ancient ceremonies of a bygone era we see they relate directly to our lives in Christ today.

Why God wounded the Egyptian gods

Posted November 15th, 2014 in Sermons

Exodus_sqrPastor Mike delivers a sermon on Exodus 8:1-10:20 where he explores God’s purpose in bringing the plagues on Egypt. After generations of Israelites had lived in Egypt they had most likely come to put some faith in the Egyptian gods of the river, land and sky. But the Lord God was determined to reveal that there was no like Him. We are challenged to ask ourself the question – do we know – and live like – there is no one but the Lord? Until our gods and those things we trust in are destroyed we cannot be set free. Listen and learn more.

Moses’ Impossible Task

Posted November 10th, 2014 in Sermons

Exodus_sqrPaul Edwards delivers a teaching from the Bible Book of Exodus, chapter six. When God places an impossible task in front of us this will require faith and involve opposition. But we find comfort in the one who will go with us. But can we identify a single thing in our life that requires faith?

Facing Life’s Setbacks

Posted November 6th, 2014 in Sermons

Exodus_sqrOur study of the Bible book of Exodus continues with this sermon from Pastor Mike. God has spent forty years preparing Moses for his great purpose and meets with him at the burning bush. Yahweh, the great I Am, provides a clear preview of what will happen – including Pharaoh’s response and how God would triumph. In Exodus 4:18-6:12 we see that this is clearly not about Moses’ amazing ability or optimistic attitude. This is about God receiving glory for what unfolds. While Pharaoh’s response was not a surprise, this major setback nonetheless sent Moses into an emotional tailspin. What does he do? He goes straight to the Lord!
