OUR VISION: A GROWING CHURCH THAT PARTNERS WITH OTHERS, SERVES OUR COMMUNITY, AND MULTIPLIES GOSPEL MINISTRIES.
The Word This Week
At the heart of our faith is grace and forgiveness. These notions address the deepest and most significant needs of humanity and what God has revealed about them in Scripture are the most priceless of treasures. They consequently are the most frequently distorted, misunderstood and abused. One of the interesting features of David's story in 1 Samuel is that there are two almost identical stories of personal interactions that David and Saul had while David was an outlaw in the Judean wilderness. They highlight the contours of biblical grace and forgiveness and we will be looking at the first of these two episodes on Sunday in 1 Samuel 24. Nick Burner will be preaching on its sequel in 1 Samuel 26 on August 19. It would no doubt take more than two sermons to exhaust all that these stories have to teach us about these monumental themes of Scripture, but I look forward to making a start with you all this Sunday!
