What a great day yesterday. Should have some pictures and maybe even some video later on, but the service was great and the baptism was really special – I love watching the testimony videos that people make and that we show before we baptize them. Some of the stories of life-change can bring you to tears. The new and portable baptism pool that we used worked out great and I can say I’m VERY glad that the heater worked because the water going in was only about 56 degrees and that’s stinking cold.
Then last night we had our first Lord’s Supper at the Boys and Girls Club. We had to move there because we’d outgrown the last place we were at and boy did we outgrow it. By my count yesterday we had 120 people come and celebrate the sacrifice of Jesus through this sacred meal. And man did the people bring the eats….great food and plenty of it (except chicken – oops). And the worship at the end was totally off the hook! I love this church and the people in it.
I had five people catch me after service yesterday and say they wanted to get baptized next time and so I’m thinking it’d be a great way to celebrate our 2 year anniversary so the tentative date for the next baptism is April 6th! Let’s see how many people we can reach before then.
