The Big "C"

Scripture: Exodus 34:19-35 & Luke 9:28-36

Speaker: Rev. Gus Christo-Baker

It is easy to stand here in the valley of our comfort. We know what to expect and what is expected of us. But Christ calls us to the mountain top to receive a new vision. We are not sure we are ready for that. But we shall place our hope and trust in Christ, for He is your Guide and He is the Messiah.

Proof of Presence

Scripture: Exodus 33:12-23

Speaker: Rev. Dr. John Whitaker

God knows Moses. Moses wants to know God's ways. Moses asks for proof of the presence of God. The proof of God's presence is the goodness of God. Who God is and what God does are absolutely consistent. God is merciful and compassionate. God's presence cannot be completely seen because God is holy. Moses sees that God will lead (Moses sees the back of God.) Moses and the Israelites can follow despite failures. God calls us to follow despite our failures.

Is the Lord Among Us or Not?

Scripture: Exodus 17:1-17

Speaker: Rev. Dr. John Whitaker

Is the LORD among us or not? Why do people concentrate on negative rather than positive experiences? The Israelites complain in the face of loss. People forget God’s previous faithfulness. God provides in the wilderness. Water flowed from the rock. God prepares us for times of wilderness.
