The Bible demonstrates the importance of people following the example of Jesus in baptism, and people are baptized nearly every weekend at Faith Promise. A couple of weekends a year, we focus on the topic and give people the opportunity to respond on the same day.
This Mother’s Day weekend was one of those baptism-focused days. Pastor Chris taught on the importance of spiritual markers, and people responded in a huge way. Just this weekend, 110 people followed Christ in baptism! What an amazing weekend!
Please join us in praying for those who took this important spiritual next step – that God will use them powerfully as they live for Him.
I want to remind you that on Wednesday, May 5, we will have our monthly First Wednesday service beginning at 6:30 pm. I am really looking forward to having an evening of extended worship, hearing from God’s Word and sharing the Lord’s Supper with all of you. Let’s fill up the Worship Center with praises as we celebrate what our amazing Savior has done for us! If you’re not able to join us in person, you can still join us online as we broadcast live on our Internet Campus.
This coming weekend, May 8-9, we will wrap up our life-changing family series, “Help! My Family Is Crazy!” with a special sermon about mothers and the impact they have on their families. Bring your family and friends and join us as we look at some of the godliest moms in the Scriptures and learn the importance of having a firm foundation.
Can’t wait to see you!
