PERRYSBURG - On July 21 CedarCreek Church hosted its second annual MOAB, the Mother Of All Baptisms, celebration at the Perrysburg campus.
It was a night filled with live music, food, inflatables, and activities for children and the night ended with a spectacular fireworks display.
"The real celebration focused around over 500 people being baptized outside, surrounded by friends, family and their church. Words can't explain the excitement in the atmosphere," said Lee Powell, founding pastor. "The stories, the life change … it is just incredible" added campus pastor Tom Martin.
One such story was Mandy Lehman, who a year ago had a near-death experience. For the past six months she has been separated from her boys as she was confined to a rehab facility. "How cool is it that we were able to raise over $5,000 to help reunite Mandy with her boys and help them get a fresh start. This just makes MOAB even more special", added Ben Snyder, regional campus director.
National recording artist "Unspoken" performed under the stars. Lead singer Chad Mattson thanked everyone who came out. More than 3,000 people attended, and Mattson said he was so inspired to witness 500 baptisms take place in Perrysburg.
Organizers called it "a great community event."
