In this series, we explore the rise of one of the wisest men to ever walk the earth. He is King Solomon. The heir to David’s throne.

All of this success and wisdom could not protect him from his own wicked desires though. Ultimately, resulting in the decline and fall of the united nation of Israel, and life as the Israelites knew it. This great fall of Israel and Judah’s kings ushers our gaze forward to a greater king. The King of kings, Jesus Christ. Hear of the hope we have in Him through the preaching of God’s word in our series, King of Kings.

This series will seek to display the sufficiency of Jesus Christ in the midst of our temptation.
