Join Me at the Church Picnic

I hope you have already marked your calendars and are planning to be at Ingleside on Wednesday night, June 29, for our annual church picnic.

Watch this short video and review the Q&A below to get a good idea of what is in store.

Where is the picnic held?
Again this year, our picnic will be held on our church campus on Wimbish Road.  We will have huge tents set up on the west side of our worship center

What time does it start?  Folks start to arrive as early as 5:00 p.m. for fellowship.  Dinner begins at 6:00 p.m.  The Lord’s Supper and baptism follow dinner.  It all wraps up by 8:00 p.m.

What about the food?  The delicious meals will be provided by our Ingleside food service team, so you won’t need to bring any food. There’s no charge, so just bring a hearty appetite!

What about seating?  Seating is provided around tables under the big tents, but you may want to bring a lawn chair with you as well – either for seating outside the tents or for the baptism time around the lake.

What should I wear?  Come dressed casually.  This is an outdoor event, so wear something cool and comfortable—and modest!

What else happens at the church picnic?  Following our meal, we will worship through song and then celebrate the Lord’s Supper.  Then, we’ll gather around “Lake Ingleside” where our Ingleside pastors will baptize all who want to publicly confess their faith in Jesus Christ.

What if I want to be baptized? If you want to be baptized, get the conversation going by emailing and we’ll help you know how to take the next steps.

I look forward to seeing you at the picnic on June 29!

July Sunday Schedule Changes

As we announced a couple of weeks ago, we plan to gather in one great worship service in our Worship Center at 10:30 a.m. for each of the five Sundays of July.  More info is on our website.

Thank You for Your Love and Prayers

As you may know, our family is grieving the loss of Beverly’s mom, Jackie Brown.  She died on Saturday, June 11, in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Mrs. Brown was 84 years old and a devoted Christ-follower.  So, even as we grieve, we are comforted by the certainty that she is now home with the Lord.

Thank you for the many expressions of love and sympathy for Beverly and our family.  Your prayers and encouragement mean a great deal to us.

It’s a joy and privilege to be . . .

Your Pastor and Friend,
