Services both Saturday & Sunday at Our Lord's. Themes include "Preparing" Mark 1:2-8 John the Baptist "proclaimed, 'After me one is more powerful than I is coming, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I have baptized you with water; but the one who is coming will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.'" -- Mark 1:7-8 John prepared those he baptized with water and washed sins away. Jesus baptizes with the Holy Spirit to open the doors to the possibilities of God's gifts and His plans for us. Even as we walk through the wilderness of life, the promise of great things that God has in store for us helps sustain us.
