Summer Baptism Celebration

Sunday, August 8 | 10 AM | Westfair Amphitheater
22984 US-6, Council Bluffs, IA 51503

One of the most exciting and celebratory things we do is to celebrate new life in Jesus and the work He is doing through our combined family baptism celebration. It is a time that we get to peek into and celebrate all the things that Jesus has done among us in the Citylight Family over the last year.

Come for a special time of worship and baptism at Westfair Amphitheater in Council Bluffs, IA. We’ll celebrate stories of how real people have met and experienced Jesus and hang out until 1:30 with bounce houses and water features for kids. Bring lawn chairs or blankets, sunscreen, and money if you want to purchase lunch from one of the food trucks at the park.

It is a time that we get to peek into and celebrate all the things that Jesus has done among us in the Citylight Family over the last year.

Due to the the increased presence of COVID-19 in our country and our region, we have decided not to host a combined Citylight Family celebration this Summer. We have come to this decision in an effort to aid in the reducing of the spread of this virus. Instead, each church will host their own baptism gathering that day in smaller groups to mitigate risk.

We will be live-streaming our baptism celebration from the Citylight Omaha Midtown location on August 9 at 10:30 AM. This gathering space will be open to Citylight staff, those being baptized, and family members who would like to be in the room. We ask that everyone else please watch from home at citylightomaha.org/live.

Citylight, would you join us in a more “virtual” celebration together this year, and let us all pray that next year we can again meet together in the park and continue to celebrate all the Jesus is doing! Jesus is still changing lives and we look forward to hearing testimonies and baptizing many new believers on August 9th!
