Our baptistery has been getting a huge workout lately! Two more baptisms yesterday morning! What an exciting time in the life of the Body of Christ!
One of the most important things I tell people who are preparing to give their life to Christ is this: "Your journey doesn't stop in the water. The journey is just beginning." Once we become a Christian, then comes the hard part; dying to ourselves daily, surrendering our desires and dreams and allowing God to conform them into his desires and dreams. That's discipleship - the process of learning to follow Christ each day.
As a church, we seek to create opportunities for all people to 1. come to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. 2. become "rooted in God's love" by growing as disciples of Jesus.
Here are a couple of opportunities coming your way...
1. Father/Son Campout - Round 2! Mark your calendar for September 20/21st at the Keltner's. If you missed our last one in early summer, you won't want to miss out on this one. If you were at the last one, make sure you sign up because we've added new activities! There will still be time for campfires, fishing, hiking, and much more! Sign up on the bulletin or contact the church office.
2. New Wednesday Night Class: Protecting Your Children in an Online World. I will be teaching a three-week seminar (Starting Sept. 18th) on social media, Internet safety, mobile devices (phones/tablets) and will be there to all your tech questions. This will be a great resource for parents, grandparents, and well...everyone! If you've never heard of SnapChat, Instagram, Tumblr, or Ask.fm to name a few (besides the obvious Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube) then this class is perfect for you. It's a challenge to keep up, let us help!
Finally, since I didn't do a Friday Five this week, I thought I'd end with a video...I mean, how could you go wrong with a Dubstep Thriller Dance Video?
Have a wonderful week!
