SERMON SERIES: BAD PLAN.
Sometimes things go wrong and it was unavoidable. But sometimes, things went south because we were working a bad plan. :)
In this series, we’ll look to the fascinating life of one person in the Bible who worked more than his share of bad plans—and we’ll explore how not to be like him.
PART 1: NO THANKS, GOD
Avoiding God’s call? Bad plan. When God speaks about the direction of your life, it’s not a suggestion. As scary as his call may be, though, there's one big reason you don't have to be afraid.
Text: 1 Samuel 9-10

PART 2: I'VE GOT THIS, GOD
Taking matters into your own hands because God’s way isn’t getting the job done? Bad plan. The worst plan of all, in fact, might be thinking your plan is better than God’s plan.
Text: 1 Samuel 13:2-14

PART 3: NO TURNING BACK…?
Not changing course simply because you’re already headed in a direction? Bad plan.
In this message we’ll look to an episode from the life of King Saul for insight on what happens when we won’t change direction.

PART 4: REASON TO FEAR
Operating outside of God’s power? Bad plan.
Sure, it can be scary to obey God. It’s when we’re not obeying God, though, that fear truly finds a foothold and begins defining our lives. Exhibit A: King Saul.
