Everyone Grow: Looking On the Heart

A study of I Samuel, things look bleak for Israel: Military attacks threaten from the outside while moral corruption destroys from within. But God will use three men to guide the nation through these difficult times into the next stage of his perfect plan. Samuel, the prophet; Saul, the first king; and David, a man after God’s own heart, are great examples of what we should and shouldn’t do as Christians today.

Everyone Grow: Ruth & Esther

Is God really sovereign? Can individual people make a difference in His world? A young girl named Ruth and a middle-aged man named Boaz answer “Yes” to both questions. Over 600 years later, a Jew named Mordecai and his cousin Esther save their nation by also saying “Yes.”
