8 Believers Baptized at Evening Fellowship

We had a wonderful time at our picnic and baptismal service on Sunday, July 8th. After a bit of uncertainty because of the weather, we were able to meet, and over 80 people gathered for food and fellowship. The highlight of the evening was our baptismal service, when we were privileged to see 8 people follow the Lord in believer’s baptism.

Praise the Lord for those that joined with us by baptism this past Sunday Evening: Reagan Barnhart, Alyvia Bernard, Michael Cler, Devin Jones, Hannah Jones, Cori Cunningham, Kim Medrano, and Vera Walsh. Please join us in rejoicing with these believers as they have been obedient to the Lord through baptism!

Unity Baptist Youth Headed to Summer Camp

Date: Monday, July 9 at 6:00 a.m.
Location: Meet at Unity Baptist Church

In less than a week, a group of 12 of us from the youth department at Unity Baptist Church will be heading to Northland Camp & Conference Center in Dunbar, WI, for summer camp! We will be leaving on Monday, July 9th, at 6:00 a.m. from the church for an exciting week of camp. Please pray for us throughout the week for safety and that the Lord will work on our hearts! This is our 1st year to head to Northland for summer camp, and we are so excited for the opportunities our teens will have to make friends, have a blast, and grow in their relationship with the Lord. Northland is a great place for summer camp, and I’m positive all of our teens will enjoy every minute that we are there. If you would like to know more about Northland, please visit their website at northlandcamp.org.

Church Picnic and Baptismal Service

Date: Sunday, July 8, 2012
Time: 4:00 pm
Location: John & Jennifer Prince's Home 575A CR 2550 N, Mahomet, IL

This Sunday, July 8th, our church will be meeting at John and Jennifer Prince’s home for a special church picnic and baptismal service. We will meet together at 4:00 p.m. at 575A CR 2550 N, Mahomet, IL, for a fellowship as a church. The picnic and food will begin at 5:00 p.m. followed by the baptismal service at 6:00 p.m.

If you have been saved (trusting Christ in repentance and faith) but have never followed the Lord in “believer’s baptism” (immersion), we’d like you to consider taking care of this important command of our Lord to everyone who has accepted Jesus Christ. We’ll be baptizing Sunday evening, July 8th. If you would like to be baptized on this day, please contact Pastor Brady for more information.
