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.

    Psalms: The Way of the Righteous (Psalm 1)
    Psalms: The Way of the Righteous (Psalm 1)
        Psalm 1 is appropriate for the introductory psalm of this new, summer series entitled "
    Psalms: Passages for Life.
    "  Through this psalm, we are shown the two paths that we human beings may choose to walk: the path of righteousness and life, or the path of wickedness and death. Pastor Sam gives us thought-provoking insights between the two ways of life that will cause every listener to stop and consider their own path. Sam's wife, Lovena, augments the service with her own life experiences and how the psalms have provided her with comfort and food-for-thought.
        We hope you enjoy this week's message.
