Ever wonder why we can’t get it together and why everything seems to be falling apart around us? Sin. We always hear that all sins are the same, and that’s true, but from early on in the church there have been a few singled out as the cause of others. Join us for our new series, SEVEN, as we discover not only what the 7 Deadly Sins are, and how to identify them in our lives, but also how to let God overcome and redeem them.
