God Is A God Of New

Our community is full of people who have tasted the freedom that comes with God’s love and decided to follow Him; sometimes tentatively, sometimes with wild abandon.  Regardless of how your relationship with Christ is growing and forming, many of us still struggle with things we wish we’d done differently.
