Faith Quest, March 4th


This past weekend at Faith Quest – March 4 – our youth learned about baptism and forgiveness. These would be the third and fourth fingers of the Five Finger Exercise (5 steps on the path of salvation). So far, we’ve covered the first 4 – Faith, Repentance, Baptism and Forgiveness. Next up??? The Holy Spirit! Given the crazy, wintery weather we had the day before, David Martin had the idea of playing a crazy Christmas elf-hat game. Once again, our three Faith Quest youth are Gabbi Morelli, Parker Witts, and Veda Redden. Enjoy the pictures.
