Baptism can be tough to define. Through history, the church has had some lively discussions about the how, the where, and the when of baptism, but we all agree that it’s a vital act of faith, and a public sign of our connection with the Lord.

It’s spiritual, but it’s also physical. It’s symbolic, but it’s also entirely real. It’s of our own free will, but it’s a commandment from God. On all accounts, it’s a very big deal. And those who take the plunge in faith are never the same.

10-Week Class beginning Sunday, April 23rd at 10:30AM in the Student Center

Have you ever struggled to read and understand the Old Testament?  Does the Old Testament seem disorganized and you tend to get lost in it?  The word ‘Testament’ is better rendered ‘Covenant’ and we are providing an opportunity to explore the Old ‘Covenant’ and it’s relationship to the New ‘Covenant’.  For 10 weeks, we will help develop a perspective of God’s Covenant to his people, as well as creating a practical and helpful Structure and Chronology of the books of the Old Testament.  Join us beginning on 4/23 in the Student Center at 10:30.

This will be a workshop in which we discover our S.H.A.P.E. (spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality, experiences). This discovery process will enable you to discern God’s leading to where you can serve.
