What to Expect this Sunday

June 25, 2017 - 10:00

Who's Speaking: 

Curt Brunk

Sermon Topic: 

3 Words from God…to Change Your Life As I mentioned last week, God has something a bit different for us this year. Usually the sermon is about baptism, but this year, God gave me three simple words, that combine in an incredibly powerful way that just makes it a really beautiful, fantastic, life changing revelation. This is going to be short and oh so sweet. And then we’ll do some baptisms! (Sign up, if you haven’t already)

Invite Those Who Don't Know Him? 

Absolutely!

Invite Those Who Do Know Him? 

Most Definitely!

Leading Worship: 

Pam Barrett

Water Baptisms - THIS Sunday at Church at the Beach

Why be baptized? We believe that people who have been born again should be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus Himself was baptized and instructed His followers to be baptized. Baptism also confirms that Christ is the Lord and King in each believer’s life (Romans 6:4).

If you haven’t been baptized, don’t miss this opportunity! Come at 9:30 for a brief meeting with Curt, bring a change of clothes and a towel.
