Speaker: Abby Hutto

Topic:Encountering Jesus: God’s heart revealed through the love of the Son

When: November 1 & 2

Description: When you’ve been discouraged in this life, have you ever asked yourself if God is really good? When faced with dissapointed hopes and unmet longings, have you doubted that he might be good to you? Even if we know the right answer to these questions in our heads, our hearts might struggle to truly grasp both God’s immeasurable power and his incredible goodness towards those who believe. We often misjudge the character of our Heavenly Father, especially in moments of darkness. God knows that we struggle to understand him so he sent us his Son, so that we could come to know God as he truly is. Together we will look at three women in difficult circumstances. We will see how Jesus lovingly enters into their hard situations and reveals the heart of his Father to each woman (and to us). We will end by looking at how we are called to respond to such a beautiful Savior who reveals to us the heart of a good, good Father. He proves that God is for us!
