Failure is part of life. Even (and maybe especially) as Christians, we mess up, we get it wrong, we feel like we have let God down. Peter, one of Jesus’ disciples and closest friends, knew how this felt. He got it wrong, but God still used him powerfully to spread the gospel. We see how God brought Peter from failure to fruitfulness, and we can hope that He will do the same for us. Join us to learn more on how to recover from failure.
Addiction is a huge problem in this country and, yes, it does impact the Church. Join us to hear a transparent and unashamed conversation with a father and daughter as they share first-person insights into the daughter’s struggles with drugs and alcohol as a teen---and what it took to get and stay clean. Her pastor father will offer a parent's perspective of those years and provide hope and real strategies to those longing for freedom---and their loved ones.
