Our new sermon series has begun on the Apostle Paul’s glorious book of true Christian Freedom, the Epistle to the Galatians. We pray that it will become one of your most treasured sections of sacred Scripture as we dive deeply into the riches that are our Justification in Christ alone, and our Sanctification, which flows from our union with Christ! This series will take us through the middle of next year.
