Easter Baptism 

At Calvary, baptism is open to adults, children and infants either by sprinkling or immersion.   We will be hosting a baptism on Easter. Please pray about this for yourself and connect with Drew if you are interested in baptism for yourself, rededication of your baptismal vows or baptism / dedication for your child.  Romans 6: 2-4 (The Message) That is what happened in baptism. When we went under the water, we left the old country of sin behind; when we came up out of the water, we entered into the new country of grace—a new life in a new land!That’s what baptism into the life of Jesus means. When we are lowered into the water, it is like the burial of Jesus; when we are raised up out of the water, it is like the resurrection of Jesus.
