To celebrate the 4th of July, my church held a large event at a nearby college (similar to last year). The community was invited, and everything was free – including food, drinks, games, and inflatables. In the middle of the event, we held a worship service, and we concluded the evening with a fireworks show.
Some of the highlights:
- Approximately 9,000 people attended the event.
- Many people responded to the message by making commitments of their lives to Jesus.
- 36 people were baptized (I got to baptize about 30 of these).
During the course of the evening I met several people who are a part of my online small group face-to-face for the first time. I also met up with several individuals who normally attend online and got to baptize one of them.
