Eleven people from the Albion Free Methodist Church were baptized this evening in Lake Ontario.

The group included Sue Kissel, shown in this silhouette. She is pictured with pastors John Keller, back right, of the Northgate Free Methodist Church in Batavia and Kevin Eccles, a pastor at the Albion Free Methodist Church.

The baptismal service was at Lighthouse Christian Camp next to the Golden Hill State Park in Barker.
