  • Wednesday Freedom Group

    It is for freedom that Christ set us free. That’s what Paul wrote in Galatians 5:1, and Jesus Himself said that He came to earth so that we may have life and have it to the full (John 10:10). Just imagine that: life abundant. Not barely surviving, but truly living. It means days filled with hope, joy, and purpose. This is the kind of life God always intended for you to have.

    Childcare: Provided as part of the Wednesday Evening Activities. Location: Ministry Center - Conference Room Pastor Gene and Lois will facilitate this group. Cost for book is $5 per person. Class meets weekly starting on January 9.
