God’s Mercy Over Our Failures – Part 1

What if your biggest failure could become your greatest story of redemption? This week we take a look at the universal experience of failure and how God’s mercy meets us in our lowest moments. We’ll see how Peter, one of Jesus’ closest friends, faced a massive failure but found incredible mercy and restoration. We will uncover how we can navigate our own failures with grace, learning from Peter’s mistakes and his eventual triumph. Discover the hope and transformation that God’s mercy brings to our lives, no matter how badly we’ve messed up!
