Starting Lent Off Strong

Jennifer has been attending our church since 2007. She has been a part of a United Methodist congregation for most of her life; she joined God in baptism at a United Methodist congregation in Pennsylvania.

Jennifer has seen multiple pastors come and go here at Fleming Island UMC but felt God lay it on her heart recently to reaffirm her baptism, make a public profession of faith, and make us officially her church home by joining.

One of our core beliefs as Methodists is that we only need one baptism because the work God does is never a mistake. Although we may need to reaffirm our commitment to God, God's part in our lives is a life-long commitment.

I was so blessed to be a part of Jennifer's profession of faith, reconnecting her to the baptism she had years ago. Even though I already considered her a part of our church, I'm even more proud to call her part of our church family officially. :)
