Frequently Asked Questions About Beach Bash

*What if I was baptized as a baby?  

WE BELIEVE THAT BAPTISM COMES AFTER YOUR PERSONAL DECISION TO ACCEPT CHRIST INTO YOUR LIFE.  IT'S A DECISION THAT YOU MAKE.  AS A BABY YOU WERE UNABLE TO MAKE THAT DECISION YOURSELF AND YOUR PARENTS WERE DOING WHAT THEY FELT WAS BEST FOR YOU.  ONCE YOU'VE MADE THE DECISION AND ASKED CHRIST INTO YOUR LIFE, YOUR NEXT STEP IS TO GO PUBLIC WITH THAT DECISION THROUGH BAPTISM.

 

*What do I bring to the Bash?

YOU'RE NOT REQUIRED TO BRING ANYTHING.  THERE IS A LONG LAWN AREA SO YOU MAY WANT TO BRING SOME CHAIRS, OR TOWELS TO SIT ON.  THERE WILL BE SOME FOOD TRUCKS THERE SO YOU CAN PURCHASE SOME FOOD OR YOU CAN BRING IN YOUR OWN FOOD AND DRINKS.  IF YOU'RE GETTING BAPTIZED, YOU MAY WANT TO BRING A CHANGE OF CLOTHES.

 

*What does it cost?

THERE IS NO COST TO ATTEND OR TO GET BAPTIZED.  THE ONLY COST IS IF YOU CHOOSE TO BUY SOMETHING FROM ONE OF THE FOOD TRUCKS THAT WILL BE LOCATED AROUND THE PARK

 

*Can I invite friends?

ABSOLUTELY!  THIS IS A GREAT TIME TO INVITE FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND HAVE THEM THERE TO SUPPORT YOU AS YOU TAKE THIS NEXT STEP IN BAPTISM.  IT'S ALSO A GREAT TIME TO INTRODUCE PEOPLE TO GRANITE UNITED CHURCH AND LET THEM SEE HOW AMAZING THE PEOPLE OF OUR CHURCH ARE

 

*Can I only come if I'm being baptized or supporting someone getting baptized?

NO - THIS IS OPEN TO ANYONE WHO CALLS GRANITE UNITED CHURCH THEIR HOME.  THE IDEA OF THIS EVENT IS NOT JUST THE BAPTISMS, BUT ONE OF THE FEW TIMES A YEAR WHERE OUR ENTIRE CHURCH COMES TOGETHER.
