Getting Free of Hangups, Hurts and Habits

This Lent, the message series at the Sunday Lenten homilies will be about getting free. So much of our culture stresses personal freedom. Yet, many in our times are not experiencing personal freedom. Many are experiencing struggles in their personal life in the form of hang ups, hurts and habits that are destructive to their life and those whom they love the most. This message series will explore how Christ came to bring us freedom and how we can participate in this gift to us.  He said of himself that “I have come that they may have life and have it more abundantly.”
