So, in July we had our first baptism service for The Vineyard.  It was, by far, the most amazing church gathering I’ve ever been a part of.  We got together poolside that night on the 4th of July to celebrate our country’s freedom, eat some great food, go swimming, and celebrate the freedom that six people had found in following Christ.  Watch this video to see a little of how the gathering went down…

We got together at the pool of some of our Vineyard attenders to host our very first baptism service.  We were blessed to see the Lord move in the lives of six people who wanted to publicly announce their intentions to truly follow Christ for the rest of their lives.  The two couples that you saw in the video were people that have gone through the long, grueling process of genuine discipleship through the small group that Dave has been leading at his house.  The other two guys have been attending our small groups and worship gatherings from the beginning of the church.  It has been incredible to see the Lord move in each of their lives in such a way as to challenge them all to put their previous conceptions of what religion was and to truly begin following Christ in the way that he has desired them to.  We have watched the Lord growing each of them in some truly amazing ways.  I have seen these six people become some of the most selfless and genuine Christ followers I know.  How awesome is it to see God at work?  It has been an amazing journey over the past nine months, and this baptism service made all those difficult sacrifices more than worth it.  I can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for the next nine months!
