New life! That is the message of Easter. This Easter we welcomed K.C. Waldbillig into the family of God. Though we are always members of God’s love, baptism is an important way to officially join a faith community. K.C.’s yearlong discovery of God’s love for him, and his return of that love, culminated in his baptism at the Easter Vigil. It was beautiful and awe inspiring (as baptism always is) but it was particularly special for our families to witness someone so dear to us taking that step. We thank the St. Stephen’s family for the warmness and affection of this welcome. K.C. has newfound grace and direction and hope God continues to do good works through him always!
