SUNDAY'S MESSAGE - "The Gift of Freedom!" In the midst of the oppression of taxation with representation, the first Americans fought for their freedom. As a result, we enjoy incredible freedom in our country today, chief of which is the freedom to practice and share our faith in Jesus Christ! God calls us to walk in freedom with Him and to share with others the gift of freedom from sin, death and the power of the devil in our lives.
OUR READINGS - Galatians 5:13-26, Luke 4:14-21
