As a church plant, we run into unique situations all the time. Here is one I would like some input on.

We are making plans for our first baptism as a church plant. Since we have no permanent facilities, we will likely be using a rented location (park district poolhouse, hotel, etc.). The question I have is whether or not it is appropriate for a pool party to accompany the baptism. Is this appropriate? What steps need to be taken to make it appropriate? Should we maintain the sacredness of baptism by refraining from adding a pool party to the mix?

Help me think this through. Thanks!
