Spring Chapel Schedule Announced

This spring, I’m looking forward to continuing our study of the life of Kind David.

This past fall we took a detailed look at the lessons to be learned from the story of David and Goliath. And now,  we jump into a wide range of exciting and troubling challenges throughout the rest of the life this great leader.

In the six message I’ll be preaching, I trust we can learn much from David’s life through these topics:

  1. Success!
  2. When God Says NO.
  3. Crossroads:  Compromise or Integrity
  4. The Hardest Part is Forgiving Yourself
  5. Breaking Dysfunctional Family Ties
  6. How Would God Describe You?

Along with with this study of David from the Old Testament, we’ll have two chapels with  with Dr. John Perkins.  They don’t get any more influential and insightful than Dr. John, and I’m thrilled our student can hear twice from this giant of the Church.

Other important services are planned throughout the spring. Below is the full schedule.

** Because chapel is now offered twice each Tuesday morning, we have seating space for friends of Belhaven to attend if you’d like to come.  Chapel runs for 50 minutes on Tuesday mornings.  The identical services begin at 9:35 and 11:00 am.
