July 15th News– Samson

July 13, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: Introduction to Samson

This week we will begin looking at the best known judge in the Book of Judges. In fact, he is probably one of the better know characters in the Bible. His name is Samson and he is a rather complex hero of the faith.

How much do you know about Samson’s story.

To begin, we will consider the conditions in Israel when Samson comes on to the scene (and see a lot of similarities to our world today).

To prepare, read the story of Samson found in Judges 13-16.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

July 1st News– The Fruit of Apostasy 2

June 29, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Fruit of Apostasy 2

Lat week we looked at The Fruit of Apostasy as we studied Judges 9 and the story of Abimelek. It is not a pleasant world when we abandon God and try to live apart from him.

This week we will continue to see what it is like when we abandon God for the idols of the world.

To prepare, read Judges 10. In this chapter, there is something very interesting that takes place that is a bit difficult to understand… See if you can identify what I am referring to and we’ll unpack it on Sunday.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

The Gospel According to Judges– The Fruit of Apostasy

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Fruit of Apostasy

As we read Judges 9, we will feel the weight of sin, deceit, violence and revenge. It is not a pleasant story. Yet, it is in God’s Word. Why?

I believe God wants us to understand the consequences of rejecting him- and he presents it in vivid detail in Judges 9.

The Gospel According to Judges– The Comfort of Gideon

June 17, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Comfort of Gideon

In this message, we see how Gideon moves from a man of faith to a man of the world during the forty years of peace experienced by Israel after defeating the Medianites.

Sometimes, comfort and ease can be very dangerous as we rely more on our own talents and abilities rather than relying on God.

June 17th News– The Comfort of Gideon

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Comfort of Gideon

This Sunday we will finish the story of Gideon.

Last week we saw that Gideon overcame incredible odds to rout the Midianites in battle. But it was actually God who provided the victory.

This Sunday, we see how Gideon finishes the battle and then, perhaps more importantly, how he handles the comfort and peace that comes to Israel.

To prepare, read Judges 8.

 

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

June 10th News– The Conquest of Gideon

June 8, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Conquest of Gideon

This Sunday we will continue the story of Gideon.

 

Finally Gideon is fully prepared for battle. The time to defeat the Midianites has arrived.

To prepare, read Judges 7:8b-25.

As some of you already have heard, I took a tumble down our stairs last Monday morning at 3:30am. Thankfully, my head, neck, and back did not sustain any major damage. My left shoulder, however, seemed to be the thing that took the brunt of the force. I had surgery last Monday and returned home Tuesday afternoon. I believe that recovery is going well (I’ve never gone though something like this before) and the pain is under control.

I will be there Sunday and am prepared to preach! Please continue to pray for healing… And for my family– they are serving me well and generously.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
