FREEDOM TO DO WHAT? 

We Americans cherish our freedom. A tremendous price has been paid by others for the freedom that we enjoy. As Christians, Jesus paid an unimaginable price for our freedom. You have forgiveness and have been given freedom from sin as a gift. How you treat others in light of God’s gift of earthly and eternal freedom is your gift to God, your country and the world.

SINGING WHILE IN THE STORM

Imagine that you are a sail boat. Are you safely blown around by God’s Word, leading you on the righteous path, or are you being blown around by the storms of this world, sailing into temptations? In this life, we pray that by God’s grace we are led by His Spirit and not our own sinful desires. Even when storms come upon us, God promises that He will never let us be capsized! When we are attacked by storms, God allows us to sing in the worst of times.
