Turn those clocks back…and get ready for a fantastic day at ValleyPoint!

There is an entire book of the Bible dedicated to judges. It’s a fascinating book that shares the stories of men and women that appeared on the scene to help sort out right and wrong. They also helped people get out of trouble. God’s people kept putting themselves into a never-ending cycle of disobedience, discipline, declaration of wrong, and deliverance. Judges like Deborah, Gideon, and Samson helped them find their way back to God.

What did the people do that was so bad they needed judges? Two things. First, they failed to put God first in their lives. And secondly, they did not teach their children to know God. These poor choices led to their downfall and ruin.

Join me on Sunday as we marvel at the great patience of God. We’ll also discuss how with God, people can reach their full potential. It’s good news!
