Baptism in the Park at Twin Lakes YMCA-Cedar Park
Sunday, June 23, starting at 11:30am
Sunday we’ll only have the 10am service, no small-group hour. So everyone will be released at 11:00am to head to the park. There is a large covered pavilion on the south side of the lake that’s reserved for our group. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own picnic lunch. We won’t have a set time for lunch to begin because everyone will be arriving at different times, but we expect lunch to be over at about 12:15pm, so that’s when we’ll plan on walking from the pavilion down to the lake. After the baptism, it’s “open swim” with a water slide and inflatables! We will have some yard games, too. Enter at the “Camp Twin Lakes” drive. It is the first right after Avery Ranch heading north on Hwy 183 (S Bell Blvd, not the toll).
What to Bring: Your lunch and a swimsuit. We also recommend sunscreen, outdoor games, lawn chairs, & a sun hat.

Why Should I Be Baptized? Baptism is a symbol of salvation, just like a wedding ring is a symbol of marriage. A ring cannot make a person married, but it is a constant reminder of the commitment a couple makes. Likewise, baptism doesn’t grant you salvation, but it is a powerful picture of our union to Jesus, who died for our sins and rose again.
How Should I Be Baptized? The pastor will immerse you into water and will bring you back up again. This is a powerful picture of our union with the Lord who died for us and our commitment to die to sin (Romans 6:3-4).
When Should I Be Baptized? Jesus commanded His church to baptize people after they become disciples (Matthew 28:19). Your baptism should be arranged soon after you've made this decision.
