If you encountered Jesus in the first century, what were the kinds of things you would have heard him say? What was his message, and what does it mean for our lives? 


Jesus' signature teaching method was to tell parables - short, memorable stories that illustrated a powerful spiritual lesson. In this series, we will focus on Jesus' parables. We will try to hear his words as if we were standing in his presence 2,000 years ago. If we're willing to listen, the stories he told will change our stories. 



Baptism is one of the most ancient traditions of the Christian faith, instituted by Jesus himself.  Baptism is our chance to publicly declare, commemorate, and celebrate the fact that we've placed our trust in Christ for salvation. Baptism represents our old life dying, and our new life beginning. It is also a remembrance of the fact that Jesus was died and buried in the ground, and rose to new life on the third day. Through Baptism we are vividly reminded of Jesus’ sacrifice on our behalf, and the new life that we now have because of him.


Some people are baptized because they have placed their faith in Jesus for the first time, others choose to be baptized because they were baptized as a child and want to make a public declaration of faith as an adult. Some choose to be baptized because they have returned to faith in God after a hiatus and want to celebrate what God has done in their life.


We will be baptizing people during our Sunday AM service at Adolphus Elementary on Sunday, September 16th. Please join us for the celebration! If you would like to be baptized, please click below to email our Discipleship Pastor, Percy Hudson.
