Baptism is a powerful moment in someone’s journey with Jesus. It’s an outward sign of an inner reality … a way of declaring to God, our community and ourselves – I was once dead in sin, but now I’m alive through Christ – a new creation!

If you’re ready to own your faith in Jesus, or have recently come to believe but have never been baptized, this might be your next step – and we would love to celebrate it with you! On Easter Sunday (4/9), we’ll have an opportunity for full immersion baptisms. If you’re interested, or interested in figuring out if this is the right next step for you, contact pastor Taylor at Those who were baptized as an infant / child but would like to remember their baptism will be more than welcome, as well.

Kids (through fifth grade) interested in taking this step are invited to attend one of two 30-minute interest meetings alongside their parent(s) in the Loft: Sunday, April 2nd after Vessel (approx. 12:45 PM) or Wednesday, April 5thbefore Wednesday night programming, beginning at 5:15 PM.

For those who have never been baptized, we’ll have a mandatory two week class 3/26 and 4/2 after Vessel (lunch provided). Email Taylor or Craig ( to RSVP.

What is Good Friday?
Ever since Jesus died and was raised again, Christians have proclaimed the cross and resurrection of Jesus to be the decisive turning point for all creation. Good Friday is the term we use to designate the day on which Jesus willingly went to the cross. On that day, we reflect upon the reality that Jesus suffered and died for the sake of the whole world. While it seems strange to call it “good,” we refer to it in this way not because of what happened, but because of where it leads.

What the world meant for evil, God redeemed in Christ for the good of every person. The horrible events of that Friday would eventually give way to the beautiful victory of Easter Sunday, where we discover that, through Christ, we are not only set free from the penalty of sin, but we are set free to live joyfully and to join God in God’s mission of love for the sake of the world.­

WHERE: University Carillon soccer fields
COST: Free!

A FREE fun Easter color run!

On Saturday, April 1 from 10 AM—12:00 PM we’ll be outside on University Carillon’s soccer fields having fun at the Easter color run and celebration!

Grab a white T-shirt (or one you don’t mind getting a little colorful) and join us for Jelly Bean Jog—a family-friendly color run open to all ages! There will be free food, face painting, Gaga ball, games, kids activities…and best of all, it’s completely FREE!

Invite some friends and neighbors and show up in a white shirt on Saturday morning, ready to have a good time!

• How long is the jog? To get all five colors, you’ll have to travel the course twice — for a total of ½ mile. You can jog around as many times as you’d like!
• Do I have to run? No! All ages may participate…at whatever speed is comfortable. Feel free to walk (even with a stroller).
• Do I need protection for eyes/mouths? Not usually, but it’s up to you. Some people wear sunglasses and cover their mouths with bandanas; others do not. The colors will not be aimed at your face!
• Does the color wash out? Yes – but don’t wear something you love, just in case. If you want the color to STAY on your T-shirt, soak it in vinegar before washing!
• Is this event just for kids? This celebration event is for everyone! We have people of all ages coming out to participate … and we have activities for every age!
