Sunday 10:30am

The book of 2 Samuel continues the history of God’s sovereign working to establish a nation for his chosen people under the kingship of David. This king, known as a Man After God’s Own Heart, is a hero of the faith, but was also a man with joys, failings, temptations, victories, weaknesses, and struggles. Although the circumstances are different from yours and mine, the underlying issues faced are common to us all.  More importantly, the God who showed Himself faithful to King David is the same God who calls us to a relationship with him today.  Join us as we explore the intersection of historical narrative of Israel and contemporary application for us.

Ephesians: Your Purpose in Christ Phil Karayan

Who are you? What’s your purpose? In Christ, you are more than you can imagine—your future is AWESOME. Many believers struggle in their walk for lack of identity and purpose. Paul founded the church at Ephesus. Years later, Paul wrote his flock this epistle (letter) while in prison to encourage and equip them. He wanted them to know they have an eternal purpose and position, even before God made the universe. He also wanted the Ephesians to understand they are locked in warfare with Satan; therefore, each believer needs to put on the armor of God and be prepared to fight. Among the topics Paul addresses in Ephesians is:

  • Losing your salvation
  • Predestination
  • Israel and the Church
  • Spiritual warfare

Notes and a notebook will be provided for the study.  Notebook fee is $5.

The question you must address is not whether America and the world will regain their footing, but rather how you will respond whether they do or not. That is what this ten-message series is about. Watch these ten DVD messages in which Dr. Jeremiah addresses Terrorism, the New Russia, America’s borders, the Coming of Christ and more, including a special interview with Sheila Walsh.

Like a seasoned angler, our enemy opens his tackle box and selects the lure most likely to attract his intended prey—usually the one you and I are least likely to consider harmful.
