BAPTISM SATURDAY, April 2 - We are dedicating a whole Sunday morning service for baptisms. What better way to celebrate the Easter season and the new life we have in Christ than to celebrate changed lives through baptism. If you have been sitting on the fence regarding this important step in your faith – now is the time!  Now is the time to take the plunge and show everyone that you take Jesus seriously and want to make Him the most important person in your life. If you would like to be baptized, please reach out to one of our pastors. They would love to walk you through this discipleship process and get you ready for this important event.


 - - We are urgently searching for ushers to serve at the 11:15 service. Please contact Pastor Andrew if you would like to sign up or if you have any questions.
