DIRECTIONS & FEES
Our BEACH BAPTISMS will take place at Fort De Soto Beach, Sunday, Aug 29th, at 5:00 pm sharp. For directions from the church click HERE. There will be New Walk Church signs when you hit the Fort De Soto Beach area… Follow the New Walk signs to shelter #2 ALL THE WAY at the NORTH end. This is a long stretch of beach, but we will be baptizing straight out past our shelter. If you are driving from the Zephyrhills area, give yourself at least an hour & 20 minutes to prepare to be there by 04:45 pm, so you don’t miss anything. There are tolls of $1.25 when you get off the interstate & then a parking fee of $5 per car as you are entering Fort De Soto Park. We encourage you to carpool with people you know are going if possible (you are welcome to use our church building as a central location to meet up with others).
Potluck! We understand that we all have crazy schedules so IF you are able we’re asking each family to bring a dish to share. Immediately after the ceremony, we will all fellowship and eat together.
Sign up link above.
WHAT TO BRING/WEAR?
Preferably, dark shirt, dark pants or shorts, (Light colors can be seen-through!) Sandals or flip-flops during the baptism. You will probably want to bring a change of clothes, a towel, & a plastic bag for your wet clothes.
Bring your friends & family with you to see and share this awesome moment in your life! Also, if there is a person who has been important in helping you find your faith & you want them to be out there in the water with you during your baptism then that is great! Let them know you want them there. Parents, you are welcome to come out & take part with your children.
CONGRATULATIONS on making the decision to be baptized!! We believe that baptism is the biblical outward symbol of the commitment you have made in your heart. Once we have accepted Christ into our lives, this is one of the GREATEST steps you can take to show others that commitment.
This is a very special occasion & we are honored to be a part of it in your life. You will not forget this moment…
(Sunday) 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
