God’s number one characteristic throughout the Bible is mercy.

His mercy heals broken hearts, reconciles relationships, restores forgotten dreams, and refreshes tired souls. It’s the cure to every insecurity, worry, and fear.

In this message series you will learn how to experience God’s healing mercy, and then offer that same mercy to others around you.

The greatest joy on earth is the feeling of being used by God for a purpose greater than yourself. In this first week, Matt Skolnik walks through the Old Testament story of Jonah and gives some insight on how we can grow in our understanding of what "mercy" is all about.

From beginning to end the Bible is filled with incredible stories of heroes whose incredible faith in God allowed them to be used by God to save the day.  

God is using his people today, through their incredible faith,  as modern day heroes in the same way.  But it's so important to the health of the local church that we be people who are plugged in to God and community.

At the center of our faith walk is the joy of giving—and in this understanding the idea of living from a view of abundance instead of scarcity.  In particular we'll look at three different kinds of generoisty that leverages abundance.  This is all because of what God did for us being generous is our response.

To have incredible faith sometimes you we can get stuck on the "how" of our faith. Sometime when we read a famiiar Bible story again and again...new ideas come to mind...that help us see that the "why" matters.
