No Manna from Moses
Chris Goldman, Lead Pastor

John 6 (read before Sunday)

“Moses gave us manna in the wilderness,” the people said to Jesus. The problem? Moses didn’t give anyone any manna … God did. And, in God’s economy, it’s important to pay attention to the “source.”

Over the past few weeks, I’ve used the term “God’s economy.” Economy refers to the wealth and resources of a country or kingdom and what the people of that country or kingdom value as “worth.” In the American economy, gold, cash, investments, equity, etc., are all part of our economy. 

God’s economy is based on many different values. God’s economy consists of traits like love, joy, and peace. In God’s economy, “The first is last, and the last is first.” In God’s economy, we don’t blame one for the acts of the other, nor do we ignore injustice just because we weren’t directly involved. This is a glimpse of what we see when we talk about God’s economy. 

Part of God’s economy calls us to pay attention to who gets the credit. We naturally tend to give credit to man when the credit belongs to God. Why is it important to give God glory? Why did Jesus make sure they knew Moses didn’t provide the manna? It gets back to understanding the concept of “source” and who our true provider is. 

See you Sunday!

"...your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God....therefore glorify God with your body."
~   Corinthians 6:19-20 NET

Friends and members of the Northwest Church have been blessed by God with the acquisition, construction, and completion of the Community Life Center (CLC). We recently announced the retirement of our mortgage almost two and a half years ahead of schedule. This was possible because of your faith-inspired generosity. We want to invite everyone to a special banquet on Sunday, February 19, at 6 pm. 

Here’s what to expect:

  • All Supporters of the CLC Welcome & Wanted (member or not)
  • Celebration of Debt Retirement and Prayer of Dedication
  • Sustainable Financial Plan for the CLC 
  • Financial Overview of the NWChurch
  • Special Donations for the NW Youth Group

Your investment in the CLC makes a difference for the community of faith, our neighbors in Lynnwood, and the surrounding region. Our creative plan for sustainability will be revealed and explained at this banquet. We believe all who’ve invested in the CLC will be enthused to understand how this can be done without an ongoing capital campaign.  

We hope you’ll plan to attend this encouraging evening as we desire to say “Thanks!” 
RSVP below by Saturday so we have space for you.
