At the 11:00 Sunday service, we begin the book of 1 Samuel, with this hinge chapter between the brokenness of Judges and the prayer of Hannah the Lord uses to restore Israel to Himself. This is a remarkable book that shows the difference between what the world hopes for and fails to give and what God gives. And in the midst of the corruption of the time of Eli, God uses the prayer of this beleaguered woman to show how He answers prayer far beyond our understanding. 9:30 am Adult Sunday School class on the Reliability of the Bible "God-breathed" led by Pastor Weibley and also Sunday School for every age, including new older high school/young adults group on Thessalonians.

Rembrandt’s remarkable “Hanna in the Temple.” In the background on the wall are the ten commandments in Hebrew. She is visiting the child Samuel, but notice the look in her face as she remembers what God has done for her and what He is now doing for Israel. See Samuel, too, in time the last Judge of Israel, but already doing the work of the tabernacle in place of the godless sons of Eli. This same Samuel will in time anoint Saul (the king who looked to have so much potential in the eyes of the world) and David (the unexpected king who had a whole heart for God and was a picture of the Great King of Israel to come).
