Volume 18 Issue 6 February 2018
As we kicked o our new Sunday AM sermon series
“Exodus” this past month, I have been incredibly chal-
lenged & encouraged by the faith of Moses. In fact,
the writer of Hebrews menons Moses as one of the
great men of faith in the
Hebrews 11:27 tells us: “By faith he le Egypt, not
being afraid of the anger of the king, for he en-
dured as seeing him who is invisible.”
Noce where all of Moses’ faith was found: “…him
who is invisible.” Moses had faith in God
because he xed his eyes on God. Moses didn’t focus on the desert. Moses didn’t fo-
cus on the 40 years of preparaon. Moses didn’t even focus on his showdown with
Pharaoh. Moses simply had faith in the promise of God because He was determined to
seek the presence of God.
Understand, for Moses, seeing God was everything. Moses never even saw the Prom-
ised Land, but he saw God, and that was enough. I want faith like that. I want faith to
keep my eyes o my circumstances & my challenges, but to keep my eyes on Christ.
As we sele in 2018, let us connue to x our focus on Jesus. Satan would have no
greater sasfacon than to disrupt all that God is doing here. But, if we are deter-
mined to seek the presence of God, by faith, we’re going to see power of God in His
great plans, purposes, and promises for us!
Here are some ways to get plugged in this month:
IF:GATHERING. All ladies teen & up are invited to this intenonal small group gather-
ing February 9+10. Come gather, get equipped, and live out your purpose as a disciple

joining us from Missouri. Come out & come hungry!
FIND A PLACE. Our men & women ministries both gather weekly to study God’s Word
in community & fellowship. GriefShare connues to meet each Monday at 6pm. Our
small groups gather every Sunday at 9:30am to pour their lives into God’s Word & into
each other. Find your place here and be
challenged to be who the LORD created & called you to be!
CHURCH ANNIVERSARY. On February 14, our church will celebrate 36 years. Glory!
What a blessing it is to see how far God has brought us, and to see how many people
God has reached through you. We are so thankful to rejoice in all the LORD has done,
what He is doing now, and what He will
