After Israel’s first king, Saul, disboeys God’s instruction, God directs Samuel to anoint David as the new king. Despite David’s struggles, God promises to remain with him and his family, and David is known as “a man after God’s own heart.” Join us this week as we look at the ups and downs of David’s reign, and the steadfast and sure promise of God spoken over Israel’s greatest king. Sunday School for all ages begins at 9:00am, and worship begins at 10:00am. We hope to see you here!
