I am the vine

Moses as a model for worship

Zach Zirbel takes the podium to examine Moses’ approach to his relationship with God. He started from the position of wanting to know God personally, then insisted that God be present with him and the Israelites in their journey to the promised land. As a result, God presented himself to Moses who then worshiped him. Message delivered 12/1/13

Be encouraged, both in blessing and in testing

Guest speaker Zach Zirbel shares that whether we are going through a really fiery trial in our life, or just the daily grind, we need encouragement. It takes courage and encouragement just to go to work every day and do a good job so you can hold your head up.

A model of how that can happen is given in 1 Samuel 30, when David and his followers found their families had been carried offby Amalekite raiders. David was distressed because his men were talking about stoning him … but David found strength in the Lord his God.

Short story even shorter, they pursued the Amalekites, destroyed them and got back all their family members and posessions.

Using other examples from scripture and his own life, Zach shares about the critical value of taking encouragement from God. Message delivered 7/14/13.
