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.

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┬ástudy 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,┬áprovides 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!

The birth of a Savior

Exodus_sqrPaul Edwards continues our fall study in the Bible of Exodus. He provides a background of the historical events leading up to the Exodus and then takes us to the text, Exodus 1:22-2:10. We were reminded of God’s great sovereignty in orchestrating entire nations for His purposes and invited to trust God when to come through when we can do nothing more in our planning.



God’s purpose in suffering

Posted September 20th, 2014 in Sermons

Exodus_sqrWith this sermon Pastor Mike begins our new study of the Bible book of Exodus. The Israelites were doing exactly what God asked them to do and yet things were growing worse and worse for them. We explore God’s purpose in causing suffering and consider if God might have similar purposes in the hardship and suffering we are enduring. The text is Exodus 1:1-21.
