Bill’s Babblings #18

Ok I will try and explain the emotion of yesterday for those of you not there.  Here is my attempt.

Chris and Johnny with me after their baptisms.

Chris, Johnny and I after their baptisms.

1.  Baptisms.  There is nothing more important to a follower of Christ than their baptism.  This is the day that they publicly state that I place Christ first in my life and commit my life to following Him.   This is the beginning point, the jumping off point for you to really be used by God.   How can I say that, because it is the first thing God tells us to do after we accept Him as our savior.  So all that to say, that is what happened yesterday for Chris and Johnny. 

2.  I wish everyone who has been a part of Chapter 2 could have been there to see it. 

3.  Chris originally attended the Sharpsburg campus, but came over to Madras so that he could invite more of his friends there.  Johnny is one of his friends he invited.  Yesteday was also Johnny’s 50th birthday.  The beauty of how God uses Multi-site.

4.  As I watched the Links video drama I thought of both of their journeys to Christ.

5.  The baptistry worked perfect.   It could not have been better. 

6.  Thank you to so many people at both campus who have worked and sacrificed so much for those who live in the Madras area.  This is what it’s all about. 

7.  At least 3 new families visited with us this week. 

8.  Loved the Mouthwash tease!!!   “what the french toast!”

9.  Small groups sign-ups are going very well.  Don’t miss out, be a part, sign-up by this Sunday.   You won’t want to miss it.

10.   Discovery class.  If you consider CCC Madras your church home you NEED to attend this meeting.  THIS Sunday night at 6pm.  Dinner and Childcare will be provided.  

That’s about it.  I hope to have a video of the baptisms and maybe other things on here this week.  So hang on.



  1. Wow. On a day that I’m feeling a little down that picture really picked me up. God is awsome! I”m just glad you didn’t fall asleep in the water 🙂
