Baby and Child Dedication Service Planned for November 30

Unified Service That Day

The unified worship service on November 30 will include a time of dedicating babies and young children.  Any families wishing to have their infant or young child dedicated should contact the church office to make sure they are included.  It's a great time to invite grandparents and extended family to celebrate with parents who are dedicating their children to the Lord.  For more information, please contact pastors Jeff Gordon or Dave Brown.

"Inspired, Transformed"

New video by ABC-USA helps define our American Baptist identity

Our denominational leaders have released a new short video, Titled "Inspired, Transformed".  The video celebrates God's wonderful gift to us of being American Baptists in interviews with some of today's most important and tireless religious and social activists:  Jimmy Carter, Suzan Johnson Cook, Luis Cortez Jr., John Lewis, Tony Campolo, Joan Brown Campbell and Neville Callam.  Referencing their personal stories, they remind us that we are a people always being inspired and transformed by the Spirit as we serve as the hands and feet of Christ.  To watch clips from the video, click here.
