We’re not ok. 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.
