David: Pursuing the Heart of God

David is one of the most  popular and fascinating characters in all of the Bible.  He was a shepherd, giant slayer, warrior, musician, poet, “undignified worshiper,” and king of Israel during it’s “golden age.”  But David was also deeply flawed:  He was an adulterer, a murderer, and liar.  Despite his flaws,  God says that David was a “man after my own heart.”  In this series, we’ll look at what it means to be, like David, a man (or woman) who earnestly pursues the heart of God.

Haggai

In 586 BC, the mighty King of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar, flexed his muscle over Jerusalem and the people of God.  The city walls were torn down, homes destroyed, its inhabitants exiled to Babylon, and Jerusalem’s temple, above all, was flattened.  Years later, God’s people were allowed to return to rebuild their holy city and it’s temple.  But not much time passed before they became self-obsessed, focusing on their own lives and their own affairs, virtually ignoring the Lord.  The prophet Haggai was sent to wake up God’s people from their spiritual slumber, encourage them to rebuild the temple, and to repent of their sin.  Join us in this series as as we hear the ancient words of God through Haggai, encouraging us to keep God’s priorities our priorities, to repent of our sin, and to always serve him with all of our hearts.

Overcomers (Continued)

There’s no question that life is hard. Many of us deal with struggles that entangle and trip us up. Things like comparing ourselves to others, insecurity, temptation, apathy, rejection, or fear to name a few. But the scriptures tell us that “in all these things, we are more than conquerors through Him (Christ) who loved us” (Romans 8:37). In this series, we are going to talk about conquering so many of the things that try to conquer us. We’ll learn that we are overcomers, not in our own strength, but because of Christ working in us and through us.
