Good People,

This weekend our nation will celebrate its 244th year of Independence.  The Fourth of July is a wonderful occasion where American citizens put aside our differences and come together as one nation, united and proud of our great heritage and our hopeful future.  This Sunday, I’m going to address a subject that I believe American citizens would benefit by having a better understanding of: The Separation of Church and State.  We’ll take a look at the history of this subject and consider how the Bible informs our Christian understanding of this most important topic. 


Happy Independence Day!

See you Sunday! 


Pastor Michael
