For 2,000 years, Christians have been baptized to declare to the world that they are believers and followers of Jesus Christ. Taking the plunge is a significant step on your spiritual journey and we’re looking forward to celebrating it with you, that’s why we’ve planned a huge church-wide public baptism event August 5 at Stony Creek Metropark! We’ll meet at Baypoint Beach at 7pm for a complete service, including a message, great worship and public baptisms happening in pools set on stage with a beautiful view of the lake. Come early to enjoy authentic Detroit Coney Dogs, on us! This outdoor event is the perfect opportunity to invite your family and friends to share in an important step in your walk with Jesus.

Check-in starts at 5:30pm. Please bring chairs and/or blankets for seating.

Entrance to Stony Creek Metropark-$7/vehicle.
