Advent - Hope

December 20, 2017

God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow; He never changes. He is the sure object of our hope - of all hope.  His promises are sure and true, and He is faithful.  As we move into a season of Advent - of waiting for the birth of Jesus - we are reminded by Psalm 25 just who made the promises of that baby, and why it should matter.

David pt 7

October 25, 2017

Pastor John continues his examination of David's life and times.   With Saul's death, civil war breaks out, even though David had been anointed as the next king.  Why did Abner resist the known will of God?  What damage could have been avoided if he'd just submitted to God's will?  What about in our own lives? There was more to David's life than just a battle against Goliath!  What was he like that God called him a man after His own heart?
