This upcoming Sunday is Pentecost. It’s also happens to be Baptism Sunday. (Yeah we planned that out.) We’ll be initiating a group of friends into our community through the ancient Christian practice of immersion in water. And that’s something worth celebrating.
In preparation for baptism, these folks underwent a three-month mentorship program to help them understand how to live as disciples of Jesus. They each were given a mentor from our community and asked to complete a list of learning activities. These ranged from studying scripture together to serving soup to the poor. The goal was not just to learn about the faith but to live it out together.
Join us this Sunday at 6 pm for Public Worship as we celebrate the mystery and gift of Pentecost – then join us after as we baptize our friends and celebrate what God has done in their lives. Pentecost plus baptism equals quite the party!
