Psalms: Waiting on God (Psalm 27)
No matter what situation befell David, he never turned his back on God or lost sight of the goodness of God. Psalm 27 is a perfect reflection of David's attitude. It is full of declarations of the Lord's goodness and deliverance. It asks for guidance and instruction and that God would be attentive to his prayers and cries for help.   
     It is thought that this psalm was sung on the eve of a battle, but one source speculates it was sung by David after the years of exile and border warfare under Saul when he realized his time had come to take his rightful place as King over Israel. For David, this proved "the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living".
    Sam's wife, Lovena delivers a great word at the end of the service and Tim Moore reads Psalm 27 at the outset.

    Psalms: I Will Recount Your Wonderful Deeds (Psalm 9)
    In this week's message, Pastor Sam presents Psalm 9, which he considers to be a complement to Psalm 13 that he taught on last Sunday. In this psalm, the author affirms his trust and faith in God with four "I will ... " phrases that just seem to answer the "How long, O Lord?" phrases found in the Psalm 13. Bruce Kupersmith reads the whole psalm at the beginning and members of the congregation witness to our Lord's wonderful deeds in their lives during the service.

    Psalms: How Long O, Lord? (Psalm 13)
    Psalm 13 is a psalm that echoes everyone's feelings of insecurity; of being alone and loneliness; of the condemnation that all those self-deprecating thoughts we all have from time-to-time; perhaps, even of feelings that God really isn't very close, sometimes. Pastor Sam addresses these issues through this psalm, which is one of those that shows the raw emotions to which we are all subject.

    Psalms: Introducing Shania Flores and Psalm 29
    This week's message is very special: We welcome Shania Flores as the newest member of the church staff! From the beginning of Pastor Sam's tenure at Coquille Foursquare, he has had the dream of instituting an internship for students pursuing the goal of working for the Kingdom. This program is designed to give the student hands-on work in the church, helping them become pastors with the Foursquare Church.  Shania is the first student to participate in this program and at the service, she shared the story of her journey with the congregation. In her testimony, we discover the important role God holds in her life.   Wrapping up the service, Sam delivers a message on Psalm 29 that melds the whole service together in one wrapper.

    Psalms: His Love Endures Forever (Psalm 136)
    Pastor Sam brings us Psalm 136, a psalm that encourages us to remain mindful of God's love for us, His children.  Each of the 26 verses illustrates a provision, protection, characteristic, or action of God that is for the benefit of His people and also illustrates what our reaction ought to be: Praise, because "His love endures forever".

    Psalms: David and Bathsheba – The Story Behind Psalm 51
    King David is celebrated as Israel's greatest king - yet, in one instance, he sinned grievously and brought hurt, pain and death to many people.  Pastor Sam sheds light on the story of David and Bathsheba as told in 2 Samuel, chapters 11 and 12. We learn that sin cannot be hidden forever and that eventually we will have to face the consequences.  When David was confronted by the prophet Nathan, he considered the magnitude of his sin, realizing that while he had sinned against his fellow human being, his greatest sin was against God, himself, and he wrote his raw feelings in the form of Psalm 51. Join us for this powerful message about the psalm that Pastor Sam has said is a psalm for Christians.

    Psalms: Spiritual Depression in the Psalms (Psalm 42)
    Psalm 42 is well-known to most Christians because it identifies our thirst for a more intimate relationship with our maker, as illustrated by the deer thirsting for water. But this psalm speaks to a condition and a need that is more than desire. Here, the author describes his depressed state of mind and that God feels distant from him; that he feels abandoned, alone, and vulnerable - yet, he is determined to remain faithful and remember past joy that came from God. The psalm ends on a note of hope: "Hope thou in God; for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the health of my countenance, and my God." Good words for all of us to remember.

    Alaska Mission: North of Hope
    This week's offering is an informal presentation of the impressions, feelings, and accomplishments of the mission's team that spent a week with the Anchorage, Alaska, Foursquare Church. Working in conjunction with North of Hope, an organization that works to bring families back together after a child has been separated from parents for various reasons, the 18 members of our team as well as folks from Alaska worked hard to get the housing up to Alaska's Child Protective Services  standards that would allow them to release the child back into the home. The team was met with skeptical looks in some cases, but with open arms and smiling faces in most. Listen to the voices of the teams members and participants as they relate how they were able to give some hope to folks who sometimes have little.

    Psalms: Deliverance Comes from the Lord (Psalm 3)
    Psalms: Deliverance Comes from the Lord
          Psalm 3 is a psalm about a pivotal point in King David's life. His son, Absalom, has essentially wrested the kingdom from his father in a coup and David must flee Jerusalem, running for his life. Along the way, we meet Shimei, a die-hard supporter of King Saul, who accuses David of murder and curses him and his reign, pelting him with dirt and stones as he and his soldiers ride past. Reading from 2 Samuel 15:5 (and following), Pastor Sam gives us the picture of the interaction between David and Shimei and suggests some questions that we might ask ourselves about our own actions and reactions.
