If you are hesitant because of COVID-19 concerns to join us on campus for your baptism, we would love to assist you in celebrating your relationship with Jesus in a setting more helpful to you. Whether you'd like to be baptized during an in-person service on Sunday, Feb. 7, or in a different setting, please sign up at  or on the app, and Pastor Larry Szyman will follow up with you.
