Find Freedom

As a group leader, you have the honor of guiding people into the freedom that only comes through an authentic relationship with Jesus. Galatians 5:13 guides us as leaders, "For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don't use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love."  Thank you for serving the families of Freedom Church.
