Church baptizes 22 at lake

From Press Repots

Maben Church of God baptized 22 people at Whites Creek Lake in Eupora on June 3.

The Rev. Kerry Collins, pastor, said more than 100 people attended the day’s event, which also included a picnic.

“Glory to our Lord Jesus Christ,” Collins said. “As a pastor in the Church of God I was so proud of the baptism response. As a minister it thrills my heart to see people get connected to Christ in personal discipleship.

“I would ask the readership to lift up these 22 people who were baptized in the lake that day. It was an old-fashioned water baptism like the olden days, and I pray for an-old fashioned Gospel to keep drawing them to a wonderful relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.”
