Virginia Beach Boat Church 10:30am Sunday Service to Honor Victims of 5.31.19 Shootings

Here is another opportunity to remember the victims of 5.31.19.

Dear Friend,

We are so excited to join together on Sunday for the First Ever Virginia Beach Boat Church!

We have moved to a NEW LOCATION at First Landing State Park at the East End of the Narrows near Crystal Lake. Come by boat which you can launch at the west end of 64th Street, or you can walk and attend on the beach next to the boat ramp. Look for the pontoon boat stage with a pink “Boat Church” banner.

It will be a beautiful service and a chance to come together to pray and remember those who lost their lives one year ago to the day at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center shooting. Join this service led by Trinity Church Pastor Randy Singer and two other great local churches, with special guests Virginia Beach Mayor Bobby Dyer and former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and others for this unique opportunity for fellowship.

See all the details attached. Please share this flyer with family and friends! You can also find us on Facebook at Virginia Beach Boat Church and Instagram @VirginiaBeachBoatChurch.

In the case of inclement weather, notice will be posted by 10pm Saturday evening on Facebook.

Be there to Worship on the Water at the Narrows off First Landing State Park, each Sunday from May 31 – September 6, 2020 at 10:30am.

Looking forward to seeing you,

Liz Seidel
