Baptized by Water & the Spirit
Sunday, August 9 - 4 pm @ Trammel Pond in Stonefort
This special outdoor worship event is open to all individuals in the Carrier Mills - Stonefort area , adults and teens, who desire to more fully experience God's unconditional love and grace and claim their rightful heritage as a child of God. The tranquil environment of Trammel Pond provides a perfect spiritual setting for full-immersion baptisms, like that experienced by Jesus in the River Jordan. It is also a lovely place to renew your baptismal vows. Those wishing to be baptized should wear modest, casual clothing and be prepared to be briefly submerged in the water. Infants and young children will also be baptized. Parents will bring their young children to the water's edge where, following an old Christian tradition, water will be sprinkled on the infant or child's head while their parents promise to raise the child in the Christian faith and with the child as a teen proclaiming their own declaration of faith; or, through immersion.
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A CHURCH HOME AND WOULD LIKE TO BE BAPTIZED, PLEASE SPEAK WITH YOUR PASTOR PRIOR TO ATTENDING THIS SERVICE.
