Samson

AS WE GATHER we continue through the Book of Judges and come to a familiar figure—Sampson. He is known for his strength, for his arrogance, for his stupidity, for his defeat and for his final victory. Sampson is a flawed victor. He breaks his vow before the Lord, believing his strength comes from his physical and intellectual prowess. The truth is the Lord is our strength. It is only when Sampson, in his true moment of weakness, finds in the Lord His true strength.

A Humble Gideon

AS WE GATHER in worship, we continue our series, “The Book of Judges.” This week we encounter a more familiar Biblical episode. Gideon is called to lead the Lord’s people against the oppressive Midianites. However, the Lord commands Gideon to fight the mighty Midianites with on a handful of men. What is the Lord’s plan for Gideon…and for us?

AS WE GATHER When you want the job done, you often do it yourself. In our focus on the Judge Deborah and the army leader Barak we see faith not in self… but in God. Deborah trusted in the almighty God to go before them and win the victory. We turn our eyes off of ourselves and look to the Lord Jesus in the good and the bad. He goes before us, He has won victory over sin… God brings us victory.



Expect the Unexpected

AS WE GATHER we begin a new worship series entitled, “Judges.” This seven-week series will walk us through the Old Testament, Book of Judges. Today we find the unexpected. The Lord raises up a leader from the least of the tribes of Israel. Ehud, a left-handed man, tricks his enemy and defeats him in a most unexpected manner. Today we’ll learn how to “Expect the Unexpected.”



The Message – Judges

AS WE GATHER we begin a new worship series entitled, “Judges.” This seven-week series will walk us through the Old Testament, Book of Judges. We will find the Lord’s people, who have entered the Promised Land, living a half-hearted faith. It was easy for them to forget the Lord and begin to assume the ways of the world. It seems like nothing has changed. How easy it is for us to fall into the same half-hearted relationship with the Lord. Let us learn from the past and grow in faith.
