Please come and see what God has laid on our hearts and how we can work together in Christ's name to grow our kids closer to Him!
Freedom is a word with many connotations, but what does God mean in Galatians 5:1 when He says "it is for freedom that Christ has set us free?" If you are a child of God, you have been given life-changing freedom through Jesus Christ from the chains of guilt, anxiety, hurt, depression, rejection and more. However, the day-to-day trials and difficulties of life seem to creep in, distract us from God's truth and bind us to carry those burdens for the rest of our life. All of us desperately need the freedom Christ gives! After all, He came that we may have life, and have it to the full (John 10:10)!
If you need to walk away from something and become completely free, please join us at Wellspring Church as Set Free Ministries presents "Women Walking Free: Unwrapping the Beauty of Your Identity in Christ." We will enjoy a special day of incredible testimony and precious conversations sharing Christ's love and encouragement with each other. Rediscover your true identity in Jesus: That you are His beloved child. Walk in His freedom.
For more informations, please contact Julie at email@example.com or call Set Free Ministries at 616.726.5400.
You. Are. Loved.
