THIS SUNDAY'S MESSAGE:
I Kings 10 & 11: King Solomon’s life testifies that success can be more dangerous than failure. Yet, the tragedy is that Solomon did not finish well. Solomon did much that was right and he was highly successful. He was the richest and wisest king of his day and everyone wanted to meet him and “hear the wisdom God had put in his heart.” So what went wrong? He was led astray and failed to remain “all in” with God. Pastor Gregg DeMey, Lead Pastor
