One of the greatest thrills in church life is celebrating with those who are getting baptised. It's one of those times when God's grace, mercy and love is made so abundantly evident to us. Hearing peoples stories and then watching them act out something of their love and obedience to Jesus is remarkable.
We will have the joy of baptising some people at the beginning of this year - however we are going to do it slightly differently. Over the past few years we have set up a paddling pool in the front car park of the school grounds and have baptised people there, come rain or shine - we even did it as snow lay about us one year. However as we grow, and now with the evening meeting up and running, we are trying to think of new ways that we can gather together to celebrate what God has done in the lives of men and women in our community.
On Sunday 30th January we are going to baptise people at 2:30pm. We will be using Brookside Church building, down in Lower Earley.
Why afternoon? To make it accessible to both morning and evening congregations.
Why Brookside? It's indoors
Why baptisms? It displays our love of Jesus and the fact that he is now the most important thing in our lives.
If you are coming along to RFC and are not yet baptised as a believer then please contact me through the blog or through the church website.
If you are free on the afternoon of Sunday 30th and you want to hear some stories of grace then why not join us at Brookside Church building, it would be good to see you there and I know the guys will appreciate your support.
