Baptism and Family Picnic

August 22, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

On August 22, we’re taking our full Sunday up to Eagle Eyrie! Save the date and plan to join us for a family morning to celebrate what God is doing in our midst!

At 10am, we’ll gather outdoors near the pavilion up at Eagle Eyrie to worship through song, teaching and hear testimonies from those being baptized! Make sure to arrive early with your lawn chairs and blankets to find a spot.

At 11am, we’ll move to the pool for the baptism. If you’re interested in getting baptized, email either Kenny at klongo@graceefc.net (for kids) or Mark at mfesmire@graceefc.net (for teens and adults).

After the baptism, the pool will open up and the potluck lunch will start up at the pavilion. For the potluck, bring a side or dessert (no sign up required) to share as we’ll be providing beef hotdogs and toppings + drinks. If your food needs to be kept cold, please bring your food in a cooler. If you’d like to enjoy the pool, remember to bring your swim items!

Date: August 22
Time: 10am-5pm
Location: Eagle Eyrie
To attend: Bring your lawn chairs/blankets, a side or dessert to share and swim items for the family
