From Mercy to Mission – Part II

What if everything you’ve ever done or failed to do couldn’t disqualify you from a life of meaning and purpose? This week we continue our exploration of God’s magnificent mercy—a force so strong it redefines our past, present, and future. We’ll see that the mercy of God isn’t just a backdrop for biblical stories; it’s the active, driving force that invites each of us into a life beyond our imaginations. Whether you’ve felt disqualified, unqualified, or simply inadequate, discover how God’s relentless mercy can transform your perceived limitations into launchpads for a purpose-driven life. Join us as we continue to learn how our very imperfections are the canvas on which God paints His masterpieces.
