On Wednesday, July 1, thousands flooded the Calvary campus to celebrate our freedom in Christ and our freedom as a nation. Families gathered in the greenbelt and amphitheater as Battledrums Worship kicked off the service, playing on a stage set up in the greenbelt. Then Pastor Skip welcomed several members of the armed forces and emergency services, and together we honored the brave men and women who have served our country. After David Cain's powerful rendition of the National Anthem, Pastor Skip gave a message called "Living Free in a Broken World" from 1 Timothy 1-2. He explained that there is more confusion than ever before about what true liberty is and that we can only experience real freedom through Jesus Christ. He also shared that we must face our past, fight for truth, and pray for people if we want to impact the world as we live in that freedom. After the service, the night came to an end as families enjoyed a magnificent display of fireworks.
