Welcome to Bethel!
Retrace the life of Moses—from his rescue as a baby to the courts of Pharaoh, his exodus out of Egypt, to his gazing on the Promised Land. Combining historical insights, archaeological data, and the biblical text, Hamilton explores how this reluctant prophet grew in his relationship with God, and how anyone can overcome hesitancy to act boldly for the Lord. Join us Sundays beginning Nov 12 for a study of this fascinating life story. This six part study is based on Adam Hamilton’s book Moses, In the footsteps of the Reluctant Prophet. It is not necessary to buy the book; however, feel free to bring a Bible. This video study is led by Pastor Ben.
