Due to pandemic conditions, this year’s picnic will be BYOLunch (bring your own lunch). Metanoia will provide charcoal and light the grill if you wish to use it, but you will need to bring your own utensils for grilling.

Interested in being baptized?

Are you or your child interested in being baptized during the picnic? Please let a pastor know by August 30th.
