Baptism and Family Picnic

August 20 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Location
Grace Church and at Eagle Eyrie afterward
1 Eagle Eyrie Dr, Lynchburg, VA 24503

We love to celebrate what God is doing in our community and we love eating meals together! On August 20, we’re putting both together, and everyone is invited!

We’ll start at 10am at Grace Church with a worship service, singing, and hearing testimonies from our body. Afterwards, we’ll head up to Eagle Eyrie for the baptism, share a potluck lunch together, and then enjoy the pool for the afternoon. If you’re coming, we need everyone to chip in and bring food for the potluck lunch. We’ll be serving hot dogs, so please bring a side or dessert to share.

Baptism will start at 12:30pm sharp, so please arrive and find a place next to the pool by then.

If you (or your child) would like to be baptized on this day, let us know by filling out the short form below. Also save the date and plan to come to one of our Baptism Classes on July 30 morning. The classes are made to give you a place to ask questions and learn why Baptism is an important part of your Christian walk.
