The story of the fall of Jericho is one of the most familiar and best loved stories in the Bible. But within the larger story of the siege of the city, there are actually three more storylines, and all four reveal an aspect of the character of God. There is more to this story than marching around walls and blowing trumpets. God reveals His character is several ways. There are both encouragements and challenges in this story. What is the primary application of today’s lesson in your own personal life?

06-28-20 WHOLEHEARTED FOLLOWER OF GOD
June 28, 2020 • Pastor George Gasperson
In today’s message, an 85-year-old man named Caleb steps forward to claim a promise God made to him 45 years ago. God made this promise because Caleb followed God wholeheartedly. We don’t have to be a Bible hero to follow God wholeheartedly. We just learn how to view the world through eyes of faith. We keep on trusting and believing and obeying no matter what happens, and we remember that the God we hold on to is more faithful and powerful than we can understand.
06-21-20 FINAL VICTORY

Israel is now in firm control of the central region of the Promised Land, and in today’s message, they subdue the remaining northern and southern regions. Embedded in the larger story are events that expose valuable spiritual truths. Spiritual victories are won when God sets the stage and people respond in faith and obedience.
