Have you ever looked at a situation in your life and said there is a mountain in your way? We can either climb a mountain or take the long way around it. How many times do you see a mountain as a problem in your lives?  But that isn’t always the case in the Bible. Some of the ‘mountain top’ experiences of God’s people were times of challenge and rebuke as well as times of affirmation and blessing.

Mountains are often mentioned in the Bible because they dotted the landscape where the stories in the Bible take place. Considered to be places ‘close to God’ mountains have great significance for Jewish and Christian cultures. The Bible mentions mountains 570 times and about one-third of the mountains listed in Scripture had at least one major event occur on them.

This Home Group series, beginning in January 2023, will look at some of the mountains in the Bible, examine the events which took place there and learn lessons from those experiences which can have a lasting impact on our lives today.

Home Group sermons are usually preached on the 2 and 4 Sundays of the month (with a few changes to accommodate the Team Service on the fifth Sunday and Easter). Full sermon notes will be provided in church and via our website. All sermons at our 10.30 am services are livestreamed to YouTube and recorded to our website here
