Sunday Recap: When God Sees More Than Us.

This Sunday we continued on with our Exodus series as Pastor Dave Taylor preached from Exodus 13:17–14:31 on Israel’s actual exodus from Egypt. Dave helped us to see that though Israel could see many aspects of God’s work in their deliverance from Egypt including the plagues, the fire and cloud and God’s faithfulness to his promises in the bones of Joseph, they were not expecting the path he chose to take them on!

Dave helped us to see from Scripture that whatever the particular pathways of our lives may be; God is always with us, always involved, & always faithful, in each & every step. You can listen online here.

We were also blessed to have our Pastoral resident Glen Jones lead us in worship for the first time in what was a wonderful morning! We’re praying that Glen, Donita and the kids would continue to settle into life here with us on the other side of the world!

Sunday Recap: Pastor Patrick!

On Sunday we had the incredible privilege and joy of ordaining Patrick Chavez as a Pastor. Patrick is a man of incredible character, holiness and humility, who has proven himself as a very able servant of Christ and steward of the mysteries of God (1 Cor. 4:1). He, his wife and his family, have served our Church in innumerable ways and we are so grateful for them. Please continue to pray for Patrick and his family, that God would use him all the more, and that God would protect them from the evil one! Please also pray that God would send us more ‘Patrick’s’ so that we can have more shepherds to keep watch over our souls!

Dave preached from Hebrews 13:17 and spoke of how in the great race of following Jesus, God has given us pastors to help us make it to the end! Pastors are called to: lead, nourish, equip, protect and serve the Church. As members we are called to follow our Pastors with faith and openness. The message will be on podcast later this week, check it out!

“Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith… Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.” Hebrews 13:7, 17
