BBQ & Baptism

BBQ & Baptism

Our annual BBQ and Baptism is this Sunday, August 4th 2013 at the Raccoon River Nature Lodge. This is the highlight event of the summer! We'll share some incredible food, Gateway Groups will compete in our first-ever Kickball Tournament, and we'll all celebrate as individuals within our community bear witness to the difference that Jesus has made in their lives through water baptism. Don't miss it!
