Baptism

“For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives. Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as he was.” Romans 6:4-5 (NLT)

Near the close of August, SMC gathers in the afternoon at Lake Cammack to celebrate life-change in the waters of baptism. Pastor Bob Disher calls this SMC’s “Super Bowl” weekend: the convergence of all of the hopes, prayers and stories reflected through the SMC community, culminating in a celebration of new life in Christ!

After being called to the shore by strains of Amazing Grace from a distant bagpipe, individuals, husbands and wives, friends, or even whole families go down to be baptized together, surrounded by a crowd of supportive SMC’ers. Afterwards, many linger to eat, talk and continue celebrating under the trees nearby.

If you have chosen to follow Jesus but have not yet been baptized, please consider joining us in August! Check out calendar for latest information!
