Our Pastor, Gary, has recently taken us through the whole of the book of Judges and what a wonderful time it's been hearing God speak to us in his word! We've learned so much together from our reading of Judges to faithfully follow Jesus. What a challenge it was to see that through these human 'saviours', both their flaws and their strengths, God has shown us our need for a true and perfect Saviour who breaks the cycle of disobedience and death. Judges can be a difficult book to read because of the similar themes and situations that repeat throughout the narrative. So we'd love to point you towards this helpful infographic from the Good Book Company that shows us some of the major events and characters of this Bible book.
We have recently begun a new sermon series in the book of Judges! Gary, our pastor, is leading us through this thrilling Old Testament book. The sermons will soon be available to listen to here on our website. There are several ways you could prepare for this new series: Please pray for Gary as he prepares to preach on this part of God's word. Pray for ourselves as we listen over the series. Read Judges in preparation!
