Did you know that mercy is God’s number one characteristic in the Bible? The world portrays God as a God of anger and judgment. But God shows himself first and foremost as a God of mercy. If mercy is God’s number one characteristic that he reveals to us in the Bible—if that is the most important thing he wants us to know about him—then it must be the most important thing for us to learn about him. And it must also be the most important character trait that God wants to develop is us. Join us for the six-session video study. The six sessions include: The Five Marks of Mercy, Mercy Forgives the Fallen, Mercy Helps the Hurting, Mercy is Patient with Difficult People, Mercy is Kind to Enemies, Mercy Cares for the Lost.

The Recovery Journey (S)
Facilitator is Patricia Patterson. 7:00 p.m.—8:30 p.m. Conference Room of the office building.


Please contact Patricia Patterson at plpatterson@comcast.net.

The Recovery Journey group gives participants the opportunity to experience the transforming nature of God’s love. Recovery is usually a term reserved for those who struggle with some form of addiction, but we will expand that definition to include any mindset, behavior, or hindrance that prevents us from accessing all that God has for us. When we can look into the mirror of God’s love and see His desire for us, the Holy Spirit will take us on a journey of transformation. Patricia can meet with you one-on-one, if you do not prefer a group setting.
