BBQ & Baptism

  • Living History Farms 11121 Hickman Road Urbandale, IA, 50322 United States (map)

Our annual BBQ and Baptism is Sunday, August 28 from 5pm - 8pm at the Prairie Church at Living History Farms. This is the highlight event of the summer! We'll share some delicious food, enjoy a few highly competitive yard games and celebrate as individuals within our community bear witness to the difference that Jesus has made in their lives through water baptism. Don't miss it!
