Two Sundays age we were able to celebrate the baptisms of some RHF family members. This is Kelly’s story:
Growing up, my mom was always interested in getting connected with a church. My mom is a postmodern pantheist who believes that all religions are just ways to connect with God, and that there is no one true religion that leads to Heaven.

Not too long after I felt God placing that upon my heart, Eric had shared with me about what he was going to start up and if I was interested in joining. I said, “I’m in. I’ll be there.” Read More
