River Baptisms and Picnic Set by Point Pleasant Church
Point Pleasant Community Baptist Church invites the community to witness its traditional baptism by immersion in the Delaware River. The church has hosted river baptisms for well over a century and a half. The annual celebration will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, August 5. This year’s baptism ceremony will include an outdoor communion worship service, led by Pastor Brenda Egolf-Fox, followed by a covered dish picnic to which all are invited.
The community will gather at Dee and Johnny Walter’s home on the river. For more information, call 215-297-5047.
