Ladies! You are ALL invited to join in as we celebrate renewal. "Renewal of what?", you might ask. Renewal of mind, joy, peace, life, and above all... renewal of relationship with Christ! This is year number FIVE that we have come together in beautiful Camp Friedenswald in Vandalia, Michigan to discover what it means to Remember the Sabbath. During this time of REST and reflection, expect to meet with God through testimonies, the spoken Word, song, and even quiet conversations. There will be abundant opportunities for games and crafts as well as for exploring the beauty of God's creation.
If you need transportation to our Sunday morning service, we would be delighted to pick you up and bring you! Contact Chris Thompson via this site. Just go to the 'Directory' link and look for his name then send him a message. See you at church Sunday!

The Purpose of Baptism
Baptism identifies you as a follower of Jesus Christ. When John the Baptist baptized Jesus the Holy Spirit descended like a dove and God Spoke from heaven that Jesus was His beloved Son. At this point Jesus was identified before heaven and earth as belonging to God. In the same way, when you are baptized, you are identified before both heaven and earth that you belong to God.
