Sunday was one of our favorite services of the year! It doesn’t get better than coming together to see people step into a new life with Jesus. As a church, we celebrated as 24 families who dedicated their little ones to the Lord and promised to raise them in the ways of righteousness. Ninety-two people were also baptized; publicly declaring their desire to wholeheartedly follow Jesus.

We had the best morning yesterday as we celebrated with a Baptism Bash and Baby Dedication! During our 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. services 116 people publicly declared their decision to follow Jesus, and were baptized. Multiple families also dedicated their babies, and promised to raise their sweet little ones in a God-honoring way. Celebrating the new life we find in Jesus will never get old!

We kicked off each service with our Baby Dedication.
Jimmy spoke a blessing over the babies and families and each child was prayed over.
After Baby Dedication we spent time worshiping the Lord together.
Jimmy shared about the Ethiopian Eunuch and Philip in Acts 8. After the eunuch learned about Jesus he proclaimed, “See, here is water! What prevents me from being baptized?”. After sharing the Gospel, Jimmy invited anyone who wanted to give their lives to Jesus to respond and he also invited them to get baptized as a declaration of their faith.
People lined up in the hall to get ready to be baptized.
