Kings & Kingdoms: Breaking the Pattern of Sin in Your Life
The poor choices of the aging king lead to catastrophic consequences within his family. How does the story of one of David's lowest moments shed light on the corrosive effects of sin in our lives?
As we continue in our series, Kings & Kingdoms, Pastor Ben takes us through the tragic story of King David and his son Absalom. Sin can often pass down and amplify through generations, but we have hope because God is in the business of bringing beauty from our ashes.
Key Verses // 2 Samuel 13-19

Kings & Kingdoms: When God Shoots Down Your Plans
We all have plans for our life. But how do we respond when God’s plans are different than ours?
Continuing on our “Kings & Kingdoms” series, Pastor Ben Stuart takes us through 2 Samuel 7 and reminds us that while our plans may not pan out in the way we think they will, we have confidence in knowing that God’s plan will be for His glory and our good. We are called to excel at the revealed things and leave the rest up to Him.

Kings & Kingdoms: Lockstep with the King
God is on the move towards the broken and lost in the world, and He invites us to move with Him.
This week in our series Kings & Kingdoms, we are joined by our friend Mike Distefano, Director of Faith and Justice Initiatives at Amirah! Mike walks us through one of the Psalms of Ascent explains how true worship leads to action. As people rescued and redeemed by God, we are called to play a part in God's redeeming work in the world.

Kings & Kingdoms: Inconvenient Obedience
God uses the wilderness to forge a kingly character in David, and He can do the same for us today.
As we continue in our series, Kings & Kingdoms, Pastor Ben walks us through some of the stories of David on the run from Saul and challenges us not to choose expedience over obedience. When we find ourselves in difficult seasons, do we try to find the easy way out or do we let God work on us in the wilderness?
Key Verses // 1 Samuel 22-26
