Though Pastor Matt gives us the long list this week from Ezra 10, the list should mean a lot more to us than just a bunch of hard-to-pronounce names. Just like them, we could be caught in sins we don’t even realize.

Rob Craft, our Minister of Youth, takes us into chapter 10 of Ezra in the continuation of “The Return” sermon series. How we live our lives should reflect what we believe, and Rob reminds us that we live with conviction, sometimes it requires doing the uncomfortable, drastic, and difficult.

Pastor Matt takes us further into Ezra 8 with “Do We Trust God or Not?” – a close look at how our lives are designed to trust God with everything.

Over and over in the Bible we see God changing hearts. He told Moses to not expect Pharaoh to let the Hebrew people go from slavery because He hardened his heart.

Pastor Matt continues into Ezra chapter 6 to share with us that we always have something to celebrate when God is in control and turns events, people, and situations to His purposes. We can and should joyfully celebrate all He’s done and will do… just like the Israelites did.
