Baptism of Peyton Cook

On Sunday, June 30, at the 10:45am Divine Service, our Lord welcomes Peyton Christine Cook as His child in the waters of Holy Baptism. Peyton, born on March 16, 2019, is the daughter of Nick and Shannon Cook. Her godparents are Allison Knight, Christina Bittner, Shawn Stokes, and Scott Betts. The Cook family invites you to a coffee, cookie, and punch reception after worship.

God’s own child, I gladly say it: I am baptized into Christ!
