WORTH REPEATING

BAPTISMS SCHEDULED FOR SUNDAY, FEB. 7

An important step in following Jesus is baptism. In consultation with local health workers, we want to offer you an opportunity to take a next step to be baptized. If you have said yes to following Jesus, but haven’t been baptized yet, we invite you to sign up to be baptized.   

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 fcchudson.com  or on the app, and Pastor Larry Szyman will follow up with you.
