This Sunday, July 18, Emmaus Road gathers along the shore of Elliott Bay for Baptism, at the beach of Olympic Sculpture Park in Belltown. Do not go to New Horizons; come directly to the park.
Bring along picnic food to enjoy; our ceremony will be brief but our fellowship long. The beach is at the end of the sidewalk where Olympic Sculpture Park gives way to Myrtle Edwards Park.
For those driving in, parking is free in the neighborhood streets nearby.
Another option is to park further north in Myrtle Edwards territory and walk, skate, or ride down to the beach.

Regular worship resumes at New Horizons the following Sunday, July 25.
