Family Picnic and Sunset Baptisms

Why baptism?

Jesus instructed the disciples saying, “go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you.” (Matthew 28:19-20) Baptism is embedded into the very DNA of the Church. Baptism itself isn’t our salvation, but it’s a decision to publicly identify ourselves with Christ and be obedient to His instructions showing the world our acceptance of salvation in Him.

Sign up if you haven’t been baptized!

We want to see everyone who has committed themselves to Christ follow His example and be baptized. If you have put your faith in Jesus and have committed to follow Him with your life, then you are ready to be baptized! Sign up by calling us, emailing us, or by texting us with your name and “Baptize Me” to 508-617-8926.

Details for Sunday

Formally we’ll be meeting from 5-7pm on Sunday, September 11. A lifeguard will be on duty for us from 4-7:30pm for those who want to swim, as well the bathrooms will be open during those hours for anyone who may need to change or use the facilities.
We’ll be using the picnic area at the beach to spend time with each other and celebrate. Bring a picnic dinner for you and your family and a dessert to share with everyone. There is a playground on site where kids (and adults) can play before and after baptisms. The Big Red Slide is an awesome experience for both kids and adults – bring an old dry towel or burlap sack to slide on and enhance your family’s experience.
For those getting baptized, please arrive at 4:30 to the picnic area. We’ll discuss baptism details and pray together before families start arriving for dinner. Sunset is at 7pm and we’ll be celebrating our faith in Christ through baptism starting around 6:30. 
Current forecasts show thunderstorms early in the day on Sunday, clearing to a beautiful sunny afternoon with a high around 82. We will gather and celebrate as long as the beach is open and the beach staff member deems the weather conditions to be safe.
