Making a Public Announcement of Your Faith
Baptism is a declaration you make to yourself and to the world that you believe in the teachings of the Bible and the miraculous gift of redemption found through Jesus Christ. If you want to make this commitment and take the “plunge,” then we look forward to celebrating this significant step in your spiritual journey with you!
August 20th: Beach Baptism Blast
It’s that time of year again – The Beach Baptism Blast (better known as the BBB) is almost here!
The BBB will be happening after the 2nd Experience on August 20th @ Bishop Lake Beach in the Brighton Recreation Area (5630 Bishop Lake rd.). Baptism is a public announcement of your faith and what better way to declare your devotion to Christ than to be baptized in a lake surrounded by your family and friends? If you would like to be baptized at the BBB please sign up in the lobby, and attend an informational class on August 6th @ 10:30am in the Alcove Room of Venture Church.
For everyone planning to attend the BBB, please bring a dessert, salad, or other side dish to pass and the BBB essentials: lawn chairs, sunscreen and, for those getting baptized, bathing suit, towels, and change of clothes. There is an $11 cost to get access to the park (if you don’t already have a recreation pass).
If your child is younger than elementary age, we offer two annual Infant Baptism and Dedication Ceremonies, one on Mother’s Day and one in the Fall. We offer a class for parents to help decide whether baptism or dedication is right for your family.
Contact Venture for more details.
We know that baptism isn’t just for babies, which is why we offer Believer’s Baptisms. We have Believer’s Baptisms multiple times a year and in August at our annual Beach Baptism Blast, where we baptize new believers in a river at a local park (and have a big ole’ party afterward). We have a baptism information class that is held prior to the events that we ask anyone seeking to be baptized to attend.
