Choose your battles

Scripture reading: II Samuel 5:1-10

In the past period we have learnt a lot about living a life with impact. Upcoming Sunday another important theme will be dealt with in the `Deep impact with David – series’: Choose your battles. Continually we feel pressure to spend our time, energy and other resources in all kind of directions. But we must learn to choose our battles wisely, if we want to live a life with impact. The Bible reading will be from II Samuel 5:1-10.

The Root Of Despair Diagnosed And Dealt With


No one escapes from feeling desperate at times. Where does this come from? And how should we deal with such feelings? Upcoming Sunday we learn more, when we read about a desperate king (I Samuel 28).

About being hurt, finding love and becoming who you are

About being hurt

What happens when you don’t get the appreciation you deserve or when people don’t see who you are? Then you get hurt. What do you need to recover from that? The answer is love – a loving community that reminds you of who you are. In 1 Samuel 25, we read how David, a deeply hurt man, meets a woman named Abigail. In this story, she is the one you should pay close attention to!

1 Sam 25:1-39


Be Patient!

Be patient!

Perhaps the hardest part of following Jesus, is that following Him implies the call to be patient. Upcoming Sunday we read an amazing story about David’s patience with King Saul (I Samuel 24). We will think of the times we are tempted to lose our patience. We learn how patience and faith cohere. We will also celebrate the Lord’s Supper. We invite you to join this service; also when you are not familiar with or sure about the Lord’s Supper. We look forward to meeting you!

We all face challenges and problems in our lives. Especially when we want to live a life with impact. Not to get stuck we need good navigation. Upcoming Sunday we read I Samuel 23:1-14 and learn more about this theme. We invite you to join the service and to invite others to come with you.

Deep Impact With David: Part III Make Friends!

Make Friends

Everyone needs friends. Friends are a great gift from God. In Jesus God offers us friendship. And we can enter into a relationship with Him. Upcoming Sunday we will not only hear more about this theme but also see how people respond to God’s friendship, by being baptised. We invite you to be present in this unique church service, which will be held at the Immanuelkerk, Schoemakerstraat 1, Delft.

Deep Impact With David Part II: Focus, Focus, Focus!

Focus, focus, focus!

If you want to live a life with deep impact, you need to learn one important thing: to focus. No one who doesn’t keep in mind his goal will reach the goal. To reach the goal we need a continual focus. For instance: to get your university degree, you need to pay constant attention to your study. However, the Bible teaches us that there is one focus that is even more important: our focus on God. If we don’t learn to focus on God, ultimately we will not impact the world. Upcoming Sunday we read the story of David and Goliath and see how the secret of David’s victory was his focus on God.

Deep Impact with David Part I: What it means to be privileged!


Welcoming service for new internationals at Delft

Do you see yourself as privileged? Ever asked yourself why and for what? Let’s think about being privileged! Upcoming Sunday we have the first of four welcoming services for new internationals at Delft, especially also new students and workers at TU Delft.

If you want your lives to have great impact, we as a church would like to support you in this. We invite you to think about how your life can have deep impact, thinking about the life of David. Coming Sunday we read 1 Samuel 16 and think about what it means to be privileged. Many of us are privileged. For example because we study or teach at TU Delft. But being privileged has a downside. It comes with the fear of failure. The story of David helps us to see with new eyes what it means to be privileged.
