BAPTISMS – ALL CAMPUSES
November 11 (Cedar Lake, Crown Point, Hobart/Portage); December 2 (Gary)

Baptism is a beautiful picture of Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. It’s an act of obedience to Jesus and is an outward display of an inward change. Our next baptism will be on November 11 during the services at our Cedar Lake, Crown Point, and Hobart/Portage campuses and on December 2 at our Gary campus. If you would like to be baptized, please register below or sign up at a Welcome Desk by October 28 (or by November 25 for the Gary campus).
