Fall series – “Deadly Se7en”

“Deadly Se7en” begins on September 17th in our morning services. The seven deadly sins were first compiled around the year 600. They are pride, greed, lust, wrath, gluttony, envy, and sloth. There will be a small group study to go along with each message and a daily devotional guide compiled by our staff. We hope that you will plan on attending each week and invite your friends.
