The Moses Legacy: Exodus

In this sermon series, we will be looking at six key events in the life of Moses. Moses is one of the central characters in scripture to whom Jesus is regularly compared. By looking closely at how God interacted with Moses, we can get a better sense of how God interacts with us and how the New Testament writers responded to God's work through Moses.

The Text In Context

"The interesting thing about this incident in Exodus 2 is that Christians today think of this chapter largely in terms of that little papyrus 'ark', while the New Testament writers almost completely pass over this aspect of the event to focus on other matters, which we must conclude are more important."

Not only will the funds raised benefit our international partners, MMM also bolsters Simi Valley’s local restaurants who have also been detrimentally affected by the pandemic as well. So give yourself a break on Monday nights in September. Eat-in or order take-out. Either way, it’s a win, win, win!
