September 26, 2014 – December 5, 2014


The book of Exodus is pivotal in both explaining the development of Israel as God's Old Testament nation and in foreshadowing God's salvation work for all people through Christ Jesus. In this Groundwork series we discuss both the familiar and unfamiliar stories from the book of Exodus to discover more about who God is and to develop a deeper understanding of how God works in our lives.

The Call of Moses

Do you have a God moment - a story about a time when you can clearly say you encountered God, that he spoke to you? This week we study Moses' encounter with God at the burning bush and what this story teaches us about our excuses, God's deliverance, God's timing, and our participation in God's plan.

Israel's Deliverance

Have you done the right thing or followed God's call only to find yourself burned or rejected rather than blessed? Did it leave you wondering what side God was on anyway?

The Exodus from Egypt

Have you ever felt stuck, like God brought you to this place in life then abandoned you? That's where we find Moses and the Israelites in our study this week of Exodus 14 & 15, and reflecting on the climax of their encounter at the Red Sea gives us a chance to contemplate the incredible power of the God we serve.

God's Glory in the Tough Places

Far too often, we let our circumstances determine how we behave. We aren't alone. In Exodus 16 & 17 we'll study the first of many times when the people of God turn against God to grumble and complain. Today on Groundwork, we learn that God's reactions to our complaining can be quite surprising.

The Ten Commandments

In the chaos of our morally loose world, our need today is identical to Israel's need at Mt. Sinai. We need to hear, from an authoritative source, both who God is and what he demands of us. Join our Groundwork conversation as we discuss Matthew 22:34-40 and the Ten Commandments found in Exodus 20.

Idolatry and the Golden Calf

Is the sin of idolatry something people typically really choose to engage in or does idolatry as often as not creep up on us? Is idolatry as obvious as bowing down before some statue or can it be as subtle as a slight shift in how we think about and talk about and even worship God? Today on Groundwork we study Exodus 32 to help us better understand, recognize, and address idolatry in our own lives.
