Join Me at the Picnic


I hope you have already marked your calendars and are planning to be at Ingleside on Wednesday night, June 24 for our annual church picnic.

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

If you haven’t yet been to our church picnic before, you may have some questions about it.  Here are a few FAQs:

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.

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 have a great time of singing, we will commission some mission teams, 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, 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!

Your Pastor and Friend,
