31 Jan Seven Baptisms at the HUB
Les Smith, senior pastor, Hillsdale UB Church (Hillsdale, Mich.)
Despite having to cancel the first service due to severe weather and road conditions, over 300 attended our second service as we celebrated the 110th anniversary of Hillsdale United Brethren Church (Hillsdale, Mich.). Only seven of the nine baptismal candidates were able to get out of their driveways for the service. I delivered my annual State-of-the-Church address.
