Short North building, 345 E 2nd Ave

Christians throughout history have demonstrated to the world the surpassing worth of Jesus through baptism as an outward expression of the inward reality that Jesus is the Lord of their lives. Water is the physical symbol that God has cleansed believers from their sins through the blood of Jesus. Believers are immersed in water, signifying the death of the old self along with his sin, and believers are raised out of the water to new life in Christ, celebrating a union with the finished work of Jesus and the salvation he has won for his followers.

Serving on Sunday – Kids Ministry

We have many ways to demonstrate Jesus’ servanthood in our lives throughout the week. That’s also true of Sunday morning. Every Sunday, many of you sacrificially serve in our connect teams, kids ministry, and media. We need more hands on deck, especially in our kids ministry as we re-open more classes. Let us know if you can help us!

Fair and Free Workshop: Hosted by She Has A Name

She Has A Name believes we can do something about human trafficking. In general, sex trafficking tends to receive more media attention; however, more people worldwide are victims of labor trafficking.

There are practical steps each individual can take in combating labor trafficking. Our hope is to offer a deeper understanding of labor trafficking and give you practical tools to respond in your everyday life.

Our Fair and Free Workshop will feature tangible strategies for consumers to shop consciously and to advocate for those impacted by labor trafficking. There will also be a pop-up market filled with vendors who sell sustainable, ethical, and eco-friendly products.
