FCP Beach Day

July 14th, 2018

You're invited to Freedom Church's annual Beach Day!

On July 14th, we'll be heading to Ocean City, NJ for a day of fun in the sun with games, lunch, swimming and fellowship! This is a great event for Freedom professionals and their families. Though childcare will not be provided, we think this is a great event to bring kids.

You'll find more details below, including instructions on how to sign up for a carpool if you're interested! If you have any other questions, contact koinonia@freedomchurchphilly.org. Now, get your sunglasses ready and we'll see you there!

Beach Tags

You need a beach tag to be on the beach in Ocean City -- but we worked out a great deal for the first fifty (50) people to request through registration get a free beach tag! (Note: kids 12 and under do not need beach tags). If we run out of free tags, you can purchase one for $5 at the beach.

Tags will be distributed between 10:00-11:30AM near the 14th Street Entrance (look for the orange FCP flags!) These beach tags will need to be returned to Lashanda or Laurel by 3:30PM - free entrance to the beach starts before 4:00PM.

Getting There

CARPOOL: If you are interested in carpooling or volunteering to drive, please indicate when you register and we will match you up to carpools in your area! If you are riding in the carpool, please chip in for parking, gas, and tolls (recommended: $10 per person). If driving solo, or with your family, and need a beach tag, please register here to secure your free beach tag!

PARKING: Parking is available for $4/day at the Transportation Authority. Metered parking is available throughout the middle of town and free on-street parking is available in other areas of the island. The city operates parking lots on 5th, 8th, 9th and 14th Streets and on Moorlyn Terrace. Private parking lots are also available. Lots run between $10-$20/day depending on the weather. We will be set up on the beach at 14th street.

What To Bring

(all are optional): beach games, swimsuit, sunscreen, sunglasses, towel, full water bottles, snacks, change of clothes, beach umbrella and/or chair. FYI, Ocean City is an alcohol-free beach.

Schedule

9am: Depart for the beach! If you are carpooling, we recommend setting a meet up time around 8:30-8:45am.

10:30-11:30am: Arrive at the beach / Pick up beach tags near the 14th Street Entrance

12:00pm: Group Photo!

3:30pm: Beach Tags must be turned in to Lashanda ( 352-804-8461) or Laurel (774-641-5452)

Water baptism

Water Baptisms

August 19th, 2018

Water baptism is an important step in a response to believe and follow Jesus. In the early church baptism was a clear step that was taken to publicly demonstrate this decision.

If you have made the decision to repent from sins and trust in Jesus as your Savior and Lord, but not yet been water baptized, we want to invite you to take this important step.

This event is tentatively scheduled to be held at Optimal Gym, located at 325 Bainbridge St, Philadelphia, PA 19147. The location will be confirmed and participants will receive an email the week before the event.

For the baptisms you will need to wear a dark colored t-shirt and shorts and bring your own towel. There are locker rooms available at the gym, which you may use to change clothes.

This is a great opportunity to invite friends and family members. They are all welcome to come and witness you take this step in obedience to Jesus!
