It seemed very fitting that this past Sunday was an introduction to the next sermon series, "I Pledge Allegiance", about giving everything to follow Christ. We sang songs such as, "I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back..." and were privileged to hear the testimony of a young man who desires to do just that.
Jeter Smith shared with us his story of God's grace and hope before stepping into the waters of baptism. God has pursued him and has great things in mind for him, even in sparing his life just a few weeks ago. His friend, Meagan Muller, shared some words of encouragement, and Tony and Carol Hiebert led us in congregational singing for the morning. We were also excited to officially accept Lane Peters, one of our baptism candidates from June, into membership. Please keep both of these young men in your prayers as they seek God's guidance for their futures.
