A Joyful First Baptism

New Tontitown Group Celebrates Lives Dedicated to Christ
December 21, 2020

TONTITOWN, ARK. –  The angels were singing sounds of joy in heaven on Sept. 5, 2020, as members of the Tontitown Seventh-day Adventist Group met with the congregation of the Fayetteville Seventh-day Adventist Church for a baptism and child dedication. Haleigh Cunningham, after much study, decided that it was time to commit her life to Jesus. Rodney Weyer, pastor of the Fayetteville church, baptized Haleigh as she began her new spiritual walk. 

We were also honored to have Jeff Villegas, ministerial director of the Arkansas-Louisiana Conference, available to dedicate Oakleigh, Haleigh’s daughter, to God. Haleigh and Oakleigh were joined by family members Rickey and Brenda Long, Rick and Kara Smith and Kymberly Cook and her extended church family members. This was the first baptism and child dedication for the Tontitown group since their formation three years ago.  

All praises and glory to God as we witnessed another soul commit their life to Jesus.
