Pastor's Bible Study: Samuel, Saul, & Solomon (Luncheon Study)

Date
Aug 17
Time
12:30 PM
Location
Main
Summary
Join us for this study, taught by our Senior Pastor, Rev. Dr. Richard Gibbons. In learning lessons from fractured kingdoms, the rise and fall of dynasties, divided loyalties, and fractured kingdoms, the opening chapters of 1 Samuel & 1 Kings are an exploration into ancient times that speak directly into ours. God speaks into ordinary lives, adding fresh color and texture to the daily decisions of Hannah, Eli, Saul, David, and Solomon as they struggle to handle major life decisions and respond to uncertainty. Yet amidst the pressures of barrenness, battles, royal schemes, and shepherds, the greatest excitement is found not in the unfolding drama of historical and national events, but in the One each life points toward.
