Baptism

Our church had a baptism service this morning at the beach.  Not only was it the first beach service I have attended, it was my first time seeing immersion baptism.  In the ocean!  Everyone came in shorts and sunglasses, the kids came in swimsuits.  I love it.

Our friend from Egypt was baptized today

Afterward, those who were baptized washed off the grimy ocean water, the youth played beach volleyball and the kids ran around writing Bible verses in the sand.  What a great reminder, that the church isn't just a building.  We are the body of Christ.





 

Happy Sunday!
