This beautiful Hebrew word speaks of God's covenantal loyalty and faithfulness towards His people. Through the story of Gideon, Samson and Ruth, we see "Hesed" manifested as a God who has mercy on His people, even though they had demonstrated a tendency to go astray. "Hesed" has the idea of "stick-to-it-ness". God sticking to His covenant, when Gideon finds it hard to trust, Samson struggling with power without priority, and Ruth as the outsider being crafted in as God shows His "Hesed" love to everyone. The promise is for us as well. God is sticking to it - His commitment to us, to walk with us through the ups and downs of our everyday lives.

We have all asked deep penetrating questions. Why does the earth exist? What is the purpose of human life? Why are we here? Well, we are glad you asked! We believe the answer to these questions lie embedded in the Bible. The Bible answers life's most fundamental questions in a remarkable unified story!
Over the next year and a half, we are going to experience "Adventures with the Bible" as we walk together as a church family through the story of God and us. Did you know... The "Tree of Life" in Revelations 22 and the "Tree of Life" in Genesis, serve as bookends to frame this story from beginning to end. The end helps to understand the beginning. The creation of a new earth and a new heaven brings to fulfillment a process that began with the creation of the earth, as described in the opening chapters of Genesis.
Along the way we will also discover the importance of the Temple in the life of Israel, how Jesus became the Temple and we are, as the body of Christ, becoming the Temple of the Holy Spirit.
Every Sunday, kWorship, and Adult worship will be on the same topic. All the "life-groups" will also be studying the same topic that is covered weekly in the pulpit. This is a very exciting adventure for all of us! Are you in?
