|On Sunday, October 8 we will conclude the series The Jesus Model by looking at Jesus’ mercy. On that day at the end of the message we will have a special invitation time for those that have been considering committing their life to Jesus. If this is something you have been thinking about, I hope you will decide to come forward during the invitation song to confess your faith in Jesus and be baptized. In Mark 16:16 Jesus said, “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”
If you have ever thought about being baptized again, I recommend you consider taking that step of faith if either of these circumstances apply to you: 1) If you did not understand the meaning of your baptism the first time; or 2) If you have not been baptized by immersion. If you decide to be baptized we will have plenty of hospital scrubs and towels ready, so all you will need to do is meet me in front of the baptistry during the invitation song. Or, if you want to let us know ahead of time please contact Almeda Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or 816-229-7311 ext. 227.
Please join me in praying for a powerful working of the Holy Spirit as we gather for worship on Baptism Splash Sunday, October 8.
