Join Me at the Picnic

I hope you have already marked your calendars and are planning to be at Ingleside on Wednesday night, June 28, for our annual church picnic.

Not only is there really good food, but there is also great conversation, singing, praying, sharing the Lord’s Supper, and the celebration of believer’s baptism.

If you haven’t been to the picnic before, watch this short video recap from last year and you’ll get a great feel for what’s 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 should I bring?  The meal will be provided by our Ingleside food service team, so you won’t need to bring any food.  Seating is provided around tables under the big tent, but you may want to bring a lawn chair with you as well (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.

If you want to be baptized, contact Hannah in our Membership Office, hmcgehee@ingleside.org or 478.477.7251, and she will set up a conversation with one of our pastors.

I look forward to seeing you at the picnic on June 28!

Your Pastor and Friend,
