Spring 2014 Baptisms Are Coming Up!

This year we had one of our best Easter Sundays ever! We held three services and all of them were full. Nearly 500 people attended – the most ever! Many of those people were your own friends and extended family – people who wouldn’t normally attend Real Life. We were so excited to see all of our seats filled with new faces!

There’s another opportunity coming up to invite the same people back to worship at Real Life: baptism Sunday! We’ll be doing baptisms at both services on May 18.

Baptism Sundays are always exciting days – we set up a pool inside the sanctuary and people come up to submit their lives publicly to Christ. Sometimes they’d been planning to do so, but often they simply feel called in that moment.We sing and worship and cheer the whole time, and the people who get baptized often have their friends, family, or mentors in the pool with them.

Essentially, baptism is a person’s public expression of their inward commitment to God. When a person recognizes the need for Christ in his or her life, he or she is welcome to come up to the pool and be baptized (though this is not the only time you can accept Christ!). Through this, he or she accepts God’s free gift of salvation and lets Him begin to work His miraculous change in his or her life.

Here are the people who got baptized last time:
