September 9th News– The Vengeance of Samson

September 8, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Samson: The Rise. The Fall. The Redemption

Message: The Vengeance of Samson

This Sunday we see the tension between Samson and the Philistines begin to boil over in a series of vengeful attacks.

How do you respond when you’ve been wronged? What happens in you head and your heart. What do you say and do? The answer to these questions has a great deal of influence on the level of peace, joy and love we experience in our lives.

This is a worthy topic for me to consider… and for you too!

To prepare read Judges 15:1-8.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Message: The Birth of Samson 2

It’s been a little while, but we will return to the Book of Judges and our study of Samson this week.

This week we will continue looking at the story and discover A Wonderful Relationship and A Wonderful Sacrifice.

To prepare, read Judges 13:1-25 and think about what this passage says about a relationship and a sacrifice.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

July 22nd News– The Birth of Samson

July 20, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Samson: The Rise. The Fall. The Redemption

Message: The Birth of Samson

In Judges 13, we see the story of Samson’s birth. There are several interesting facets in the account. It is a story that may sound somewhat familiar (Why do you think I say that?). It is a story that is also rather miraculous (Why do you think i say that?). And it is a story that should excite and encourage each of us greatly (Why do you think I say that?).

To prepare, read Judges 13:1-25 and come ready to see why I said what I said above! : )

Also, we will be having a Potluck Lunch at the Brownings (2004 Woodhollow Cove, VB) after the service this Sunday. If you can, bring something to share!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

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
