Weekend Plunge: Who’s Celebrating With You?
On September 11th at Captain William Clark Park, we’ll be baptizing in the river! In the weeks leading to that, we invite you to read these weekly devotionals to help you prepare to celebrate baptisms – or get baptized yourself! If you want to get baptized, or if you want to share the story of your own baptism, please email us.
Baptism Sunday is two Sundays away! If you haven’t gotten to come to our outdoor baptisms before, here’s what last year’s was like:
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 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.
If you’re planning to get baptized, we’d love it if you signed up to let us know – and we’d also love to have you invite your friends and family to celebrate with you! Your life has changed – it’s a great time to celebrate! Plus, God can use your baptism and its public profession of faith to speak to others. Wouldn’t it be awesome if He revealed Himself to the people you care about the way He has revealed Himself to you?
That’s why it’s a great idea to invite friends and family who don’t know Jesus to come to your baptism. It’s an incredible demonstration of what Jesus can do in a person’s life!
