OUR VISION: A GROWING CHURCH THAT PARTNERS WITH OTHERS, SERVES OUR COMMUNITY, AND MULTIPLIES GOSPEL MINISTRIES.
The Word This Week
Pastor Garth is going to be continuing our series "Long Live the King!" this week by taking us through 1 Samuel 4:1-7:2. These chapters are known as the "Ark narratives". The story focuses not on any one human individual, but rather the main character seems to be the significant piece of tabernacle furniture known as the Ark of the Covenant. As the symbolic throne of Yahweh, this box had tremendous significance for Israel. As the text will show, however, the Israelites often treated their God just like the gods of the nations. This led to disastrous results. If we are not careful, we can be in danger of the same error. May we have ears to hear what the loving God says to us this week. Marcus
