Easter, one last time (promise...)

Kyle and I were incredibly honored to play a role in this Easter's service at our church. We got asked to preform baptisms at one of the morning services, which is (I think) one of the most uniquely beautiful experiences ever. Baptisms are an outward display of an inward faith, and to be a part of that experience with someone (even just for a moment) really makes God seem big, and us seem small.

Over 420 people were baptized across all our 14 locations - what an amazing day! Here is a video re-cap from our church in Ballard. Also, here is the bigger video of baptisms from all the churches.

Also, here are some pics of our experience in the baptismal:

Also, my grandma and grandpa, aunt, mom and her boyfriend Dave joined my dad, sister, Kyle and I for church this year. It was so wonderful to look down the row and see so many important people in my life, all sitting together to celebrate our risen God!

Giving it grace: We know that if we were being judged accordingly, Kyle and I would never deserve to be a part of something so special. Jesus died for our sins, though, and we are seen as righteous before God (talk about grace!). Because God is SO gracious, He lets us be a part of His work here on earth. And for that, we're very grateful!
