May 13th News– The Call of Gideon

May 11, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Call of Gideon

This Sunday we will continue the story of Gideon.

 

Last week we saw that the people of Israel, again, turned from God– and, again, God pursues them.

This week we will look at whom God chooses as the fifth Judge of Israel. As we do, we will see some truths about God that we need to remember as we face the challenges in our lives.

To prepare, read Judges 6:1-24 and ask yourself this: What does this story reveal about God.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

May 6th News– The Condition of Gideon

May 4, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: The Condition of Gideon

This Sunday we will begin the story of Gideon.

 

You will not be surprised that Judges 6 begins with this familiar line:

The Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord

When will they ever learn?!? Why would they keep messing around with sin when they’ve seen the disastrous results of such an endeavor? Don’t they know better?

Perhaps a more relevant question is this: Why do I keep messing with sin? Don’t I know better?

The beginning of Gideon’s story surprised me because I think it reveals a lot about us and our struggle with sin. It is a universal condition that can only be overcome one way.

To prepare, read Judges 6:1-10.

Also, we will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper together this weekend.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

April 28th News– Deborah & Barak Part 2

April 27, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: Deborah & Barak Part 2

This Sunday we will continue to look at the story of Deborah and Barak.

Last week we saw that the people of Israel, once again, rejected God and went their own way. This, once again, led to their bondage under a foreign power. They, one again, cried out to God for deliverance and God, once again, provided a leader to free them. Even though God’s people keep rejecting him, God keeps pursuing them.

This week we will see two more things in this story that is true for us as well.

To prepare, read Judges 4 and 5 again.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

April 15th News– Ehud

April 13, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Gospel According to Judges

Message: Ehud

After a break for Easter, we are returning to our series in the Book of Judges.

This week we will look at a vivid and detailed story about a man named Ehud. If you have never read this story before, you will be surprised at the facts the author includes in this account. You may also have some questions about the actions of the main character.

We have seen before that the Bible does not shy away from difficult topics and disturbing details, but rather, presents the world we live in in vivid color.

To prepare, read Judges 3:12-30 and ask yourself this question: What does this story mean to me and what I face in my life?

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
