My Top 10 Fav Picks From MM #33

A very special kind of beach party.......last Sunday after church......

Once a year in August, my church holds a baptisim at the beach!

This is our church Pastor, the one with the guitar. We all start off the event by singing worship songs to The Lord.
Next we journey down to the water.....
We lay hands on and pray for those about to be baptized...
Our Pastor and Assistant Pastor are both needed because of the waves, sometimes it can be a challenge and timing is everything.
It's a good thing that our Pastor was once a Huntington Beach Lifeguard!
What a beautiful way to be baptized!
 
Acts 2:38~Peter replied, "Repent and be baptizedevery one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Be washed.........
Clean.
Then rejoice and celebrate!

After the baptism, we relaxed and shared a huge pot luck meal.

As the sun set it was time to light the fire pit......
and make s'mores for dessert.
We love our church family, so many wonderful people and great fellowship with other believers.


And now, for the top ten. If your post was featured this week, feel free to help yourself to a featured button from my sidebar.

Hi Mary! I love the photos and wonderful sentiments from the special baptism day at the beach. It looks like you have a wonderful church family. Thanks so much for featuring my crepe myrtle arrangements AND some of the other posts from MM. I don't know how I missed seeing some of them but I did. Now I have a second chance to go back and look at them. :}
p.s. Did you change a few of the pictures in your header?
