Beach Baptism 2017

 
sunday | august 27 | 4pm picnic at pavilion 2, 5pm baptism
 
Come to the beach to welcome new members into the family of Christ!
 
Baptism is one of two sacraments in the United Methodist Church and where better to celebrate than surrounded by God's creation.
 
Christ Church will baptize people into the family of Christ on the beach at Pompano Beach, just across the street from the Pompano Beach Pier Parking Garage, just north of the Pompano Beach Pier.
 
Those who have been baptized are invited to remember their baptism in this moving service as well.
 
If you would like to be baptized this day, you are invited to attend a class with Pastor Monique McBride at 11:15am Sunday, August 13, in Breakout Room 2. To let us know you're coming, email Bev Wallhoff, administrative assistant to the pastors.
 
Before we go to the water, we will gather for a picnic in Pavilion 2, just north of the pier.  We'll provide hot dogs and lemonade; we're asking you to bring cookies and other goodies to share to elebrate the end of summer with your church family.
 
There'll be a Kids Sandcastle building contest, and professional sand sculptor John May will join us, building a special creation just for our beach baptism ceremony.
 
Three or four volunteers are needed to help set up the picnic and serve. If you can help, please email Pastor Josh Beaty or call him at 954.771.7300.
