The story of Moses is one of the most familiar in scripture. However, there is more to the story than we often know or remember. Join us for our summer series as we learn some of the wisdom this ancient prophet has to offer our modern lives.
We’ve created a discussion guide for group or individual use that you can download here: Moses Discussion Guide
This worship and small group series begins Sunday, June 12th.
Key Scripture: Exodus 1:1-2:10
While there were many things that set the story of Moses into motion, one of the most powerful and dangerous of them was xenophobia, the fear of the stranger or foreigner. However, as is always the case in our faith history, fear and hate don’t stand a chance against love.
Key Scripture: Exodus 3
While there are plenty of moments in the story of Moses where God does amazing things, there are just as many moments when God works through ordinary people to make amazing things happen. What was true then is still true now if only we will GO!
Key Scripture: Exodus 3-15
The Exodus is one of the most important stories of our faith. But how much do you really know about it? In this message, we explore this familiar story in some unfamiliar ways.
Key Scriptures: Exodus 32-34
After receiving the Ten Commandments and making a covenant with God, Israel finds itself in a difficult situation. Instead of remembering God’s commandments and promises, they make a golden calf and begin to worship it. In this message, we explore the ways our own golden calves get in the way of the life God has called us to live and how we move forward.
Key Scripture: Exodus 14
As they were fleeing Egypt, the Israelites came to Red Sea and found themselves trapped by the water in front of them and the Egyptian army behind them. It was a frightening and frustrating moment. In response, Moses called them to do something difficult stand still. Sometimes the only way forward is for us to do the same.
Key Scripture: Exodus 16-18
Not long into their wilderness journey, the Israelites began to realize how difficult things were going to be, and they cried out to God for help. God responded by providing manna for them to eat and water for them to drink. Not long after, Moses found himself in a place of need. This time, God sent a person to help.
When we need something, God still provides for us. Sometimes by giving us our daily bread. Sometimes by sending someone to help us along the way.
Key Scripture: Deuteronomy 30:11-20
In this week’s passage, Israel begins looking to the future. As Moses reminds them of all they have been through and the ways God has been faithful to them in the past, he gives them a choice. They can choose life or choose death. What will they choose and what do those choices look like for us today?
Key Scripture: Numbers 13-14
While their journey toward the Promised Land ultimately took 40 years, the Israelites could have arrived a lot sooner. Because they failed to trust God, they were denied entry. It’s a difficult story to hear, but its lessons may keep us from making the same mistake.
Key Scripture: Deuteronomy 32:48-34:12
After telling the story of Moses’ death, scripture writes this about his life: “Never since has there arisen a prophet in Israel like Moses.”
Those words would hold true until the birth of Jesus. As we wrap up this series on Moses, we will hear some final words of wisdom from the ancient prophet that could lead to an incredible blessing.
