Week 1 – Back to Normal
Exodus 13: 17-22
Welcome to Nambucca Baptist Church for our service this Sunday 23rd August 2020. This morning it was wonderful to see both Harry and Stewart back from long illnesses; true answers to prayer. Today we start a new sermon series with the title of ‘A New Normal’. The series is based on the story of the Exodus and how the Israelites had their ‘normal’ taken away from them overnight and they were having to make life or death decisions through their journey in the wilderness. Today we learn how when confronted with the Red Sea in front of them, and the rapidly advancing army of Pharaoh behind them, they blamed Moses for taking them out of slavery to die at the hands of the Egyptians. Moses responded with a three-stage plan to build up the people’s faith and trust in their God.
As always we are welcomed to church by Meryl, who also leads us in prayer. Fay reads the scripture for us from Exodus 13: 17-22. This morning is a communion service and this will flow right on from the message. We trust that you will enjoy our service and if it blesses you then please leave a comment at the foot of the page and share the links with your family and friends on Facebook.
This is where we would normally take up a collection but as you can see we can’t pass an offering bag around online. We have, however, provided a secure online giving facility for you. You can either use the Tithe.ly app on your smartphone or just click on the green button on the screen. We have been blessed by the way so many of you have managed to continue to give in various ways so that we can continue with the work of the Lord here in our church and beyond our walls.
Thank you for staying with us for the service we trust that you were blessed by it. As always, I try to offer a little Easter egg at the end for our online viewers. this week it is our friends Sergio and Rhoda exploring the Valley of Elah where David met and defeated Goliath. what they discovered as they explored is truly remarkable so I trust that you will enjoy it and visit our website again.
