“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” | Matthew 28:19-20

Baptism Preparation Meeting

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21 | 9:30 AM | THE MILL
Baptism is important in your journey of faith. If you would like to be baptized, we would like to meet with you briefly to hear God’s story in your life!
We will now be offering a Kids Baptism class at the same time as the other classes, in the Kids Ministry 5th grade classroom. This class is designed specifically for 2nd-5th grade students to explore the basics of their salvation decision and baptism. Our interactive material taught by our Kids Ministry staff will engage kids and help make sure that they understand this important step in their faith. Every kid (2nd-5th grade), wanting to participate in the baptism service will be asked to articulate their salvation decision and must attend the baptism class.
