I am free!
Those words may bring to mind that next week, on July 4th, we will celebrate our freedom on Independence Day. But before that freedom was ever given to us, there was another freedom that all people were given. Paul spoke into that freedom frequently. In fact, in Galatians 5:1, he wrote "Christ has set us free to live a free life".
As true as those words are, we find ourselves failing to live that "free life" as we sometimes forget that "Christ has set us free". Sin no longer should have the hold on us that it once had since we "have been set free from sin" (Romans 6:22). So why are we not living the free life that Christ set us free to live?
You are invited to join us in worship this Sunday, July 2, as we think about how "I Am Free to Live for You" (Romans 6:12-23) and to celebrate that Christ has indeed set us free! That celebration will also lead us to the table as we remember what a gift Christ has given to us. We will also be celebrating the appointment of our new Associate Pastor as Rev. Trey Burns joins our ministry staff on Sunday. A celebration luncheon/reception will follow the 11:00 service as we will be serving hot dogs and ice cream on this 4th of July weekend.
We look forward to having you join us on Sunday!
