This Year's Spiritual Theme

An epic battle is forming with two armies drawing close to the battle lines. The clash between the Philistines & the Israelites will go down in history as one of the most well-known battles of all time. God’s chosen people, the Israelites are faced with a determined army who boasts the most powerful and fierce man of war this world has ever seen. Goliath! Standing at around 9 feet tall, Goliath was a fearsome and experienced fighter who made great boasts defying God’s people, taking pleasure in mocking the God that they serve. Then there’s David… a young shepherd boy who was simply willing. Willing to put his life in God’s hands, willing to follow God and willing to be persistent with carrying out the plan God set before him, David was willing no matter how impossible it seemed. God’s plan was put in place and David approaches the front lines, boldly facing Goliath. The stage is now set for what will be the ultimate fight! We can’t wait to dive deep into God’s Word to see how God prepared David and delivered His people from the hands of the Philistines. God used a shepherd boy and a slingshot to slay a giant! What else can God do!? Our God is Able! And He can use even the most unlikely people to accomplish His plan!
