Taking the God Plunge…

EPC - BBQ & Baptisms

First of all I apologize for taking a two week hiatus from blogging.  I have been insanely busy working on BBQ & Baptisms, Mother’s day services, baby & child dedications, Faith in Action Sunday, and mission work in the Philippines and Cuba.  On top of all of that the “mother of all allergy seasons” knocked me down, kicked me and stomped on me for a while, and I wound up with an upper respiratory and sinus infection.  It has been a fun fun last two weeks!

However, it is clearing up now just in time for tomorrow’s “Take the God Plunge” BBQ & Baptisms at Lake Allatoonna.  This is going to be awesome!  We will be baptizing about 20 people in the lake tomorrow, we will have a monster cookout, play games, kick back and relax on the beach, & swimming.  This is also a great opportunity to get to know a whole bunch of people outside of the craziness Of A Sunday morning @ Eagle Pointe church.

I hope all of you will join us for an incredible day.  We will start baptizing people at 10:30AM – so please arrive early and be ready to cheer like you’re at your favorite team’s football game for these people who are taking this step of faith – a.k.a. the God Plunge!  Please join us in praying for good weather and don’t forget to bring lawn chairs, side dish and/or desert, & sunscreen.

I also hope that you’ll join us for our Mother’s Day services at Eagle Pointe church @ 8:30, 10:00, & 11:30AM.  We have a great and fun service planned for you & the people you bring with you this Sunday.  We also have 18 families who are taking part in our baby/child dedications this Sunday.  It is going to be a memorable Mother’s Day at Eagle Pointe church – don’t miss it!

    Where can I find info on your Cuba Mission? I have been leading a mission to Herradura, Cuba for several years. I am interested in developing a forum for information exchange with others who travel there for mission work. tnzeller@comcast.net

    Wow! What a BIG weekend for the Lohr Family. Thank you Howard and all of our EPC family. This was an incredible weekend I’ll remember for the rest of my days. Standing there on the beach looking towards the Heavens with my family was an absoutley awe inspiring moment. I couldn’t help but see my Mom and Grandma looking down at me with their sweet smiles, knowing how proud they are of me and realizing I will one day see them again. Then to top it off by dedicating to our three children on Mothers Day was just icing on the cake.

    Thank you and God Bless…
