Baptism At The Beach

We are excited to be hosting a baptism on the beach at Cape Henlopen in Delaware. Join us for a powerful time of worship, public declaration, and fun! We will plan to spend the morning setting up and preparing for the baptism, followed by our worship time, baptism, and then finishing the day off with some fun at the beach! We are encouraging people to bring their own food and snacks for the day. We will be providing water and tea! Feel free to bring beach games to enjoy! Register.

Save The Date: Monday, September 12, 6:30 PM

 

See the life-changing power of the Gospel in action as we hear testimonies of God’s faithfulness and see brothers and sisters make professions of their new life found in Christ Jesus.
