Bible Verses on Freedom / Independence Day at Church
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. -Galatians 5:1 ESV
Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. -1 Peter 2:16 ESV
But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Romans 6:22-23 ESV

Independence Day FAQ from Children’s Ministry Teachers & Church Pastors
Consider this Bible verse for your Independence Day Sunday School lesson. Galatians 5:1 says, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” This speaks of spiritual freedom that we have in Christ, and how we should help others attain that same freedom.
On patriotic holidays, read scriptures that focus on the love of country. For example, 1 Peter 2:17 says, “Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood of believers. Fear God. Honor the emperor.” This scripture teaches that we are to respect those in authority and grateful reverence for God who ordained nations. We celebrate the freedoms we have in our country and pray for those who are defending our freedoms. Another great scripture to teach on patriotic holidays is Romans 13:1-7 which talks about how we should submit to governing authorities because they have been ordained by God.
Many Christian churches in the Untied States do display the American flag on Independence Day. This is because they celebrate the freedom that we have as Americans to worship freely. Additionally, they may also see it as a way to show patriotism and support for our country. Some will say the Pledge of Alliance during worship service as well.
