2 Samuel Sermon Series: Broken & Beloved

This autumn, we’ll follow the epic story of King David in 2 Samuel. As you probably know, David is a Beloved King. Actually, his name literally means “beloved.” God’s people love him. More importantly, God loves him. But what about his relationship with Bathsheba? What about all of the violence? What about all of the chaos that surrounds his life,…

1 Samuel 12

As Israel celebrates the establishment of Saul’s kingdom, Samuel begins his farewell. He calls Israel to testify against him, but no offense is found (v.1-5). Samuel reminds Israel of God’s gracious ruling and faithful protection in their lives regardless of their sin (v. 6-11). He also reminds them that they rejected God as King in order to choose their own king (v.…

1 Samuel 9-11

As soon as the people refuse to obey God and Samuel (1 Sam. 8:19-22), we are introduced to the king they had asked for, Saul (whose name means “to ask”). 1 Samuel 9 describes that Saul came from a wealthy family, from the small tribe of Benjamin.

He Is Good (August Sermon Series)

“Give thanks to the Lord, for HE IS GOOD, for his steadfast love endures forever” (Psalm 136:1). This summer, we want to take time together as a church to let this truth sink deeper in our hearts: God is good.  This simple yet profound conviction protects us from bitterness, grumbling, and discouragement. And it frees us to walk forward with confidence and…
