Baptism of Our Lord Sunday
January 13, 2019
Over the past two years, the Lord has steadily brought many persons to Emmanuel for Holy Baptism. In fact, nearly half of the children in our Children's Christmas Service are newly baptized. God is blessing our life together in the Gospel!
Baptism is a unique Sacrament of God's blessing, one so important that Jesus Himself underwent Baptism in the Jordan River. Through that blessed event, Jesus prepared the way for our Baptisms into the name of our Triune Savior, "In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost." At Emmanuel, we want to remember our Baptisms as the Holy Scriptures urge (Romans 6:1--4; 1 Corinthians 6:11; Titus 3:4--7) and as Pastor Luther taught us to do in his Small Catechism. On January 13, 2019 we will have a special service, preaching on the catechism, and baptismal treats in Sutorius Hall during the 9:15 Bible Class hour. After the 10:30 service, we will have a group photo of all those baptized in the past two years. We also hope that sponsors and family members may likewise gather to remember their calling as witnesses to the faith and the work God began in and through Baptism.
