The books of 1 and 2 Samuel relay Israel’s transition from being ruled by judges, of whom Samuel was the last, to being led by kings. The people of Israel demanded this change although it didn’t follow God’s desire for the nation (1 Samuel 8-1-9) Samuel was a godly leader who wanted Israel to remember that God was their king and called them to faithfulness to Him. The people, on the other hand, wanted a king like the other nations had. Someone they could look to as their leader. Someone who would lead them in battle. God gave them the desire of their heart and set up Saul as the first king of Israel.

Each year we will celebrate God's faithfulness, from 5 until forever because God is El Olam, the Everlasting God! ...
Men, mark your calendars for September 7-9 to be in Lake Geneva, WI for the Men's retreat. We'll be encouraged, refined, and challenged as we live out God's calling over our lives as men.

At The Comeback, we'll learn to find our strength in God and lock arms as men to advance God's agenda in our homes, community, city, and world. ...
Sexual assault and harassment is never okay. It’s heartbreaking (but sadly no longer surprising) that so many women have experienced this evil and injustice.
