Summit Church Mauldin celebrated their five-year anniversary today with an outdoor baptism and picnic, following the second service, with the congregations from Cherrydale and Spartanburg joining in the massive celebration.

The food was delish, the community, teeming with energy — but it was the baptism that served as the highlight. How could it not? Sixteen people of various ages publicly celebrating a wondrous salvation that’s already taken place inwardly. 

A few weeks ago, Jason Malone, one of the pastors at Summit, gave THE best sermon I’ve ever heard on the subject of baptism, which you can listen to here.  

Since our church search began back in August ’11, we’ve had the opportunity to visit several outstanding churches, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Lord leads us to call Summit “home” very soon. 

Happy Birthday, Summit Church!
