Over the last few months, the Madison Community Seventh-day Adventist Church has had many reasons to celebrate!
On May 21, the church rejoiced with Tedroy and Colleen Wilson as they were baptized by Pastor Rowell Puedivan during the Sabbath worship service. Pastor Puedivan says that he enjoyed studying with them because of their eagerness to understand, learn, and grow. He remembers that Colleen asked lots of questions during the Bible study series. As soon as Tedroy began attending, he offered to help the pastor in any way he could. Because of his willingness to help, Tedroy began building sets for the church’s Walk Through Bethlehem and Easter musical outreach programs. Tedroy said, “I’m willing to use my gift for the Lord Jesus”. Together with their son Jordan, they participated in both of these outreach ministries. The church was blessed to witness their baptisms, expressing their faith in Christ.
During the same worship service on May 21, a dedication was held for their young son, Jordan. After the service, the church enjoyed a potluck lunch together which was followed by a surprise dinosaur-themed “Kid Shower” because Colleen never had a baby shower when Jordan was born. The church family loved surprising them, and Jordan’s grandma, Janet Barr, also enjoyed the special day.
Continuing this high Sabbath of family celebrations, the Madison Community church also acknowledged their graduates.
The previous Sabbath, May 14, the church celebrated with a baby dedication for Jamie, the daughter of Nikki and Jermaine Moulton.
Earlier in the spring, baby sowers were held for the Moulton family as well as for Kris Grant.
And on March 12, a child dedication was held for Paul-Michael Breininger, son of Esther Breininger.
Such joyful events are celebrated by the entire Madison Community church family!
