What a Mess: How God Can Bring Good Out of Any Situation, A Study of the Book of Judges

A free eight-week study in the First 5 app starting June 27.

In the book of Judges we see God take messy people and a messy nation and raise up leaders. We see that each and every mess they got themselves into, God was always there — and out of the mess, God brought something SO good.

Can we remind you that we serve a great big God?

There is no mess too big for Him to bring good out of it.
