As you are turning to Exodus 25 … let me remind you that every Sunday on our campus .. we have multiple worship gatherings. As we enjoy a blended worship in here .. our younger children are down stairs experiencing worship designed for them.
Upstairs we have a Brazilian Worship gathering and we look forward to Easter Sunday with the arrival of their new pastor Fabio Cano. And then over in the G building we have a contemporary worship gathering that's all together different.
Roswell Street Baptist Church today has multiple services … multiple styles .. multiple speakers that all Exalt the Savior, Equip the Saints and Evangelize the Sinner.
In this day of technology .. we can now simulcast from the worship center over to the G building and today is one of those days.

Exodus 25.8-9, "And let them make Me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them. According to all that I show you, that is, the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furnishings, just so you shall make it."
"… make Me a sanctuary (lit. a sacred place) , that I may dwell among them." Did you know that God wants to dwell with you? Well He does. In fact .. the Hebrew word translated "dwell" is where we get our English word "Tabernacle." You could say it this way: "make Me a sanctuary, that I may tabernacle among them." Now get this locked into your mind today: Where God dwelt was a sacred place. And what made it sacred was the presence of God.
Now in thinking about Health Care Inform .. there are some things w ...
