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 7 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 for pre-service fun! Starting at 5:30pm, we'll be serving coney dogs, chips and a beverage until service begins.
This outdoor event is the perfect opportunity to invite your family and friends to share in an important step in your walk with Jesus.
Baptisms will happen during each service, either on stage or live via video. To "get dunked," your next steps are...

Family Baptism Class
Have a child in grades K-5 (age 10 and under) who wants to be baptized? Your first step is to assess their spiritual readiness. Second, we'll ask you and your child to attend/view a Family Baptism class in preparation for the event. Contact the Kensington Kids Directors at your campus with questions and for readiness guidelines and class date and time info.
