Sabbath for Website1



1-2 Samuel cover

Join us in 2023-2024 as our Women’s Ministry Bible Studies journey through the books of 1 & 2 Samuel. The action starts on the heels of Israel doing what is right in their own eyes and their quest for a righteous ruler. We will explore the themes of kingship, character, integrity, covenant and the sovereignty of God as we dig into Israel’s misplaced desire for a king and the rise and fall of King Saul as well as his replacement, King David.
