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

June 17th News– The Comfort of Gideon

June 15, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

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

May 27th News– The Conditions of Gideon

May 25, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Conditions of Gideon

This Sunday we will continue the story of Gideon.

Gideon has torn down the altars to pagan Gods in his father’s house and he seems ready to do what God has called him to do. But we’ll see that Gideon needs some more persuasion from God.

How often do we find ourselves second guessing what we believe God is telling us? I think we all spend a lot of time wrestling with this. What does Gideon do? What should we do?

To prepare, read Judges 6:33-40.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

July 9th News: Jesus Before Caiaphas

July 7, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours That Changed The World

Message: Jesus Before Caiaphas

After Annas, the former high priest, could not find anything with which to charge Jesus, Jesus is sent to Caiaphas the current High Priest. With him are members of the Sanhedrin and they continue to search for something to charge against Jesus.

In this second Jewish/religious trial, we see the frustration of the religious leaders and the calm determination of Jesus.

To prepare, read Matthew 26:57-67 and Mark 14:53-65. You will see that these accounts are similar with one small difference (that is very important).

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

July 2nd News: Jesus Before Annas

June 30, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours That Changed The World

Message: Jesus Before Annas

This week we see the first of 6 trials Jesus must go through on his way to the cross. As he stands before Annas, the former High Priest, he is questioned to determine a charge against him. Jesus and Annas have a history and this plays a role in this particular trial.

To prepare, read John 18:12-14 and 18:19-24. Also, read John 2:13-22 and Matthew 21:12-17. Although these may seem unrelated to John 18 they are not. Come this Sunday and see why.

 

 

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

June 25th News: Jesus Is Arrested

June 23, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours That Changed The World

Message: Jesus Is Arrested

This week we return to the Garden of Gethsemane and find a large group of people looking for Jesus. They are ready for a fight and a hunt– expecting Jesus to run or hide. Jesus, however, does neither.

When Jesus is arrested we will see his glory, his power, and his love against a backdrop of evil, injustice, and betrayal.

To prepare, read John 18:1-11. You can also read the account in the other three gospels: Matt. 26:47-56; Mark 14:43-52; and Luke 22:47-53.

I encourage you to read each of these passages and see how Jesus moves purposefully to the cross.

Reminder! We have moved to a new location…

We meet every Sunday at 10:00 AM at School of Rock in Virginia Beach, located a block from Great Neck Rd (Corner Great Neck and Mill Dam).

June 18th News: Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane

June 14, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours That Changed The World

Message: Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane

 

Since January, we have been walking with Jesus throughout the Gospels. Now we focusing on the last 24 hours before the crucifixion. Last week we watched as Jesus lovingly washed his disciples feet–cleaning away the dirt and grime we all pick up in a world corrupted by sin.

This week, we will walk with Jesus to a garden outside the walls of Jerusalem near the Mount of Olives. We will see him in the moments before his arrest and continue to see how he loves his disciples– and us– “to the end”.

The account of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane is recorded in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. We will focus primarily on Mark’s account (Mark 14:32-42). I would encourage you to also read Matthew 26:36-46 and Luke 22: 39-46.

Reminder! We have moved to a new location…

We meet every Sunday at 10:00 AM at School of Rock in Virginia Beach, located a block from Great Neck Rd (Corner Great Neck and Mill Dam).
