The Shepherd King

Jul 30, 2023 — Scott Woolens  — In today’s lesson, we’ll explore the life of David, son of Jesse, a major character in the story of God’s chosen people, Israel. He was a good king but not a perfect one.  His life is full of heroic conquests and tragic misdirections and yet he points the way to a faith that will not let go of the God of Israel because the God of Israel will not let go of him.

Jesus’ Christmas List

Dec 01, 2019 — Elisha Freeman — An exciting tradition shared among most families is that of making the all important Christmas list. It is the list we send to Santa and the list we give to our families to request certain toys and presents for Christmas. Did you know that the Gospel of Matthew begins with a list. It certainly is an odd way to begin a biography but this list is vital to the foundation of the Gospel. This morning we will put this list under the microscope and be reminded that Jesus completes the story told by the Old Testament.
