Through August 30/31
God did not choose the largest and biggest soldier to be king, but a young man that had a heart like God's. He is an example for both his great faith and his failures — a man like us who can teach us how to follow God. We, too, are called to be men and women after God's own heart.
“David and Bathsheba”
Rev. JoNell Lindh
There may not be a more challenging story in all of the Bible. We were told that God doesn’t see people the way we do, God sees the heart. We were told that David was a man after God’s own heart. David, the idealized king of Israel. David, the one from whom God Messiah must spring. And yet, David commits crimes that seem impossible for this psalmist, the chosen of God.
5:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary

“Confession and the Story of David”
Rev. Robert Hasley
You have heard the old saying, “Confession is good for the soul.” As we work through all the stories of David, it is often hard to find the man that God found. But we tend to look in the wrong place. We need to look past his many sins and see his heart, as expressed in his many psalms.

Rev. Arthur Jones
Even the man after God’s own heart falls. We like to think that we are better than that, but we all fall – and we all are in need of grace. Even if we have a heart like God’s…

“Where is David’s Heart?”
Dr. Scott Engle
David’s orders are followed and Uriah is killed. Bathsheba mourns her husband but then is taken to David’s palace to be one of his wives. She gives birth to a son. We’re told that “the thing David had done displeased the Lord.” How could it be? How could this man “after God’s own heart” commit such terrible crimes? What does this say about our own life with God?
9:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary
This is a Christ-centered worship experience built on a foundation of engaging biblical teaching. The Chancel Choir and other ensembles lead the powerful worship music.
