2013 BBQ & Baptism | Photos and Recap

Baptism, Event

bbqBaptism_620x130

On September 10, 2013, we celebrated as 11 individuals obediently followed Jesus Christ’s commandment to be baptized (Matthew 28: 19). We heard 11 stories of redemption, 11 stories of changed lives, 11 stories of individuals being saved from death to life and 11 stories of people trusting in Jesus Christ for salvation. The religious church-goer and the rebellious pot smoker, the overlooked and the overachiever all shared the same story: “I’m a terrible sinner in need of Jesus Christ.” The evening was filled with chatter, children, and plenty of cheers! Praise Jesus for all the work He’s done and continues to do in the city of Seattle.

Baptisms-(620x130)In exactly one month, on September 10, DCC will close out the end of the summer with a BBQ and Baptisms celebration at Lake Union Park. We’ll gather as a family, eat together, and hear accounts of God’s goodness in the lives of individuals. This will be such a rich time to enjoy our city and be encouraged by those that have repented from sin and trust Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

When we repent of our sin and trust in Jesus Christ for our salvation, we should be baptized (Acts 2:41). If you’re considering baptism for yourself or simply want to learn more, click here or e-mail info@downtowncornerstone.org with any questions you might have.

Save the date, invite friends and neighbors, and enjoy last year’s video.

On August 16th, 2012, we had the privilege and honor of holding our second annual summer baptisms as a newly forming church in the heart of downtown Seattle. Simply speaking, it was an awesome evening. There were testimonies of God’s grace, great food and 12 baptisms. What a night!

God has not called us to plant this church in order to merely build a great church – but to build a great city, from the avenues to the alley ways. That happens as individual lives are changed by Jesus and sent into the city armed with His message and mercy. Baptism marks that change and for that we rejoice.

On Thursday, August 16th, 155 of us gathered at Lake Union Park to enjoy summer barbeque, our beautiful city and God’s great grace in baptism. Throughout the night we got to hear of Jesus’ real, active, transforming work in the lives of 12 brothers and sisters in Christ.

Ephesians 5:1,4And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world…But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him.”

This Thursday | BBQ & Baptisms!

City Life, Community, News | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


Join us this Thursday (August 16th) for our second annual summer baptism and BBQ at the west side of South Lake Union Park. BBQ’s will be hot and grilling at 6:00pm – don’t forget your meat! We’ll transition to testimonies and baptisms at 7:00pm. There are a number of things to keep in mind as we prepare to celebrate together. This is going to be a great night!

#1 PRAY. Please pray for the 12 that are set to be baptized. First, pray God gives them courage and clarity to share what He has done in their lives. Second, pray God uses what they share to lead others to know Him and stirs the faith of those that already do.

#2 VOLUNTEER. If you have not yet signed-up to volunteer (grilling, set-up, tear-down, etc) there are still a good number of needs. You can RSVP and sign up here. If you’ll just be visiting, there’s no need to volunteer, we’re glad you’re joining us and happy to host.

#3 COMMUNITIES. Every community is shouldering a portion of the load in providing side dishes and desserts. If you haven’t yet, please talk to your community lead to find out how you can help. Don’t worry if you’re unable to provide anything. There will be plenty to go around.

#4 INVITE. This is a great opportunity to invite friends, neighbors, coworkers and family to celebrate with us and hear the gospel through lives that have been changed by Jesus.

#5 TIMING. Please arrive as early as you can to allow ample time for your meat to grill, to hang out with friends, meet new folks, grab a game of bocce and be available to help as needed. If you’re able, please consider staying after to help us clean and pack-up.

Can’t wait! See you on Thursday at South Lake Union.

Learn more about baptism here.

On December 11th, 2011, we had the privilege and honor of holding our first indoor baptisms as a newly forming church in the heart of downtown Seattle.

It was an exciting morning as we saw friends and neighbors proclaim commitment to Christ and be baptized, symbolizing their new life in Him. God has not called us to plant this church in order to merely build a great church – but to build a great city, from the avenues to the alley ways. That happens as individual lives are changed by Jesus and sent into the city armed with His message and mercy. Baptism marks that change, and for that we rejoice!
