Note that we have a Special Baptism Event coming up the weekend of November 20 & 21, 2021. It's a fun, celebratory weekend where multiple people choose to get baptized during the worship service time of their choice: Saturday 5pm, Sunday 9am, or Sunday 10:30am. Of course, you can always get baptized on a different weekend that works best for your schedule.
