God’s Call to the Young

Mission song: Before our lesson this morning, let’s hear from some of our outreach group that went door to door yesterday: Josiah was coronated king of Judah when he was only eight years old.  Let’s set this up and see how this happened. Josiah’s father and grandfather had been wicked idol worshipping men.  What will Josiah do?  His grandfather, Manasseh, who was 12 years…

How to Put Your Hope in God

It was confirmed to me again this week how our reading through the Bible together is a vitally important part of what we do here.  God’s word is our food.

Overcoming a Divided Heart

David’s life story in the books of Samuel and Chronicles, and his 73 or more Psalms give us a unique insight into the life of this amazing king of Israel who God chose as a man after His own heart. David became powerful and wealthy and served as king for 40 years. With all that power and wealth, one might think David would have a very happy and satisfied life, but his…

Mother’s Day 2018

Today is Mother’s day, 2018.  Let me show you a couple of slides that depict motherhood a bit.  Four generations of women A mother and baby Psalm 131 Mom with shouting son Mom and finger pointing daughter Mom pointing finger at teenage son Mom and dad arguing with child covering ears Mom, did you ever get “the look”?  Kids with eyes rolled back When God made Adam and Eve…
