Baptism Sunday

This Sunday we will be celebrating what God has done in the lives of 8 people who attend Arbor Drive as they follow the Lord in believer's baptism. This is a tremendous opportunity to not only celebrate what God has done and worship Him, but show people a visible picture of the gospel. I want to encourage you to invite someone who doesn't know Christ this Sunday to watch as we picture dying with Christ, being buried with Him, and being raised to newness of life. This visible and public identification with Christ is a great way to open the doors to talking about the gospel with friends.

 

Here is what this next week will look like. Not only will 6 people be entering into the waters of baptism this Sunday morning (the 22nd), but another husband and wife will be baptized Sunday evening at 5:30 as well. Following that on Wednesday, one of the men of the church that volunteers with the middle schoolers will be baptized and share his testimony with them, and then the following Sunday (the 29th) 3 more people will be baptized in the Sunday Morning service. God is doing some exciting things here at Arbor Drive and I want to encourage you to be a part of this, celebrate what God is doing and support brothers and sisters in Christ as they follow Him in obedience! Would you please prayerfully consider bringing someone with this Sunday and pray that God will use it to save souls!

 

For His Glory,

Pastor Jon

Who Should Lead

Pastor Cory Kitch of Stromsburg Baptist Church and I sat down and discussed the issue of leadership in the home and local church. This will be part of an ongoing series of videos called Pastor Discussions where pastors and leaders within the church will sit down and tackle issues or questions that come up in life. If you have a question, feel free to let us know. We are working on a series on leadership right now and this is the first installment. This particular video would be a good resource for husbands and wives to watch together and talk about. Our hope is that it will spur conversation within the marriage as to how each person can better help their spouse live as God is calling them to.
