June 30, 2019 8:00 a.m. Traditional Sunday Worship Service

Philippians 1:27

Sing America’s Song

This Sunday, June 30, we will take a break from our sermon series “Habits of Grace” as we have a special musical celebration at our 9:30 & 11:00 a.m. worship services. When we step over the line of faith in Jesus Christ, we become citizens of heaven. Most of us at New Hope also have the privilege of being earthly citizens of the United States.

The message will be titled “Declaration of Dependence.” We all love the idea of freedom, but in true, Christ following freedom we are always both freed from something (the power of canceled sin) and for something (new life). The Apostle Paul even said that true freedom comes through being a “slave of Christ” and a “citizen of heaven,” and that matters as we reflect on what it means to be a citizen of the United States. So read Philippians 1:27, Romans 6:22–23; Galatians 5:1 to be better prepared: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians%201%3A27%2C%20Romans%206%3A22–23%3B%20Galatians%205%3A1&version=NLT;ESV
