Baptisms at Good Shepherd Church

On Sunday, July 9, Good Shepherd Church (GCI’s congregation in Cicero, IL) held a baptism service. “It’s always been a desire of mine to have baptisms here at our building—this year we did it for the first time, and we hope for many more,” said Pastor Israel Hernandez.

The baptism service, which began in the sanctuary, continued outside where ten young followers of Jesus were baptized in a pool (seven were participants in the GenMin camp in that region). Many non-member family and friends attended, bringing the total to 95 people witnessing this joyous occasion. After the ceremony, the children jumped into the pool and a picnic-style potluck was served. Here are some pictures (for more, click here).

  3. Yes. It really was a very happy event. I had never seen the church almost filled to capacity. Glad to have witnessed it. May Jesus bless them every day.
