Beach Baptism Details

Beach Baptism Service. Florida weather. Henderson Beach State Park,+Destin,+FL&sll=30.511189,-86.497046&sspn=0.00843,0.013797&ie=UTF8&ll=30.395014,-86.440945&spn=0.033759,0.055189&z=14&iwloc=B

Well, right now the chance of scattered thunderstorms for tomorrow afternoon is at 50-60% depending on who you look at. Which is the pretty standard summer forecast. In fact it doesn't change until Wednesday when some dry air comes through. So, barring any unforeseen circumstances we are going ahead. Should that change we will contact as quickly as possible.

It is at Henderson Beach State Park and will begin at 3:00 p.m.

Here’s the plan.

First we’ll have a brief worship service, to include praise, scripture, and teaching. Second, we’ll baptize some folks. Finally, we fellowship while we eat a nice beach meal.

For the baptism, please tell me (just hit reply) or Kevin Hickman ( if you plan to be baptized. We’ll baptize all who understand what this step of faith means and want to take it, but would like to have an idea of whom to expect. Dad's - if your son or daughter is being baptized, I'd love to have you be a helper when it is done. It will take two in the surf, and you both will treasure the memory of this step in following Jesus.

Everyone: Bring beach towels if you plan on getting wet - extras if you have them and are not. Wet and cold people just don't seem to be as friendly. :)

For the meal, the church will provide hot grills, some hamburgers and hotdogs. To make it a nice meal, please bring any other meat you’d like to grill and a side dish or dessert to share.

For the fellowship after. If everyone could remember that we are going as the church and dress appropriately that would be great. That means long T-shirts over bikinis if that's what you normally wear to the beach, and nothing outrageous or out of character. Also, the wind may be over 10mph so be prepared for that and also for sun should it choose to favor us. Sunscreen is your friend.

Hope to see you there so we can worship and fellowship together,

God bless,
