South Bay Church’s New Baptismal Pool

Posted: May 22, 2010 in South Bay Church

This is our new baptismal pool!

We just got our new baptismal pool for the church on Thursday this week (see the picture).  This pool is actually made to be a portable baptismal pool for churches, unlike our kiddie pool we had before!  We were told this new pool was easily portable, but we weren’t sure what that meant fully until it arrived.  When the freight truck delivered it to our office it was in one box taller than I am and was taking up a full wood pallet.  Oh yeah, and everything combined weighed 300lbs!!  Needless to say the box wasn’t going very far and seeing how we rent office space on the 2nd floor of our office complex the only option for us was to leave it in the parking lot, which is where we set it up for the first time ever!  People kept walking by and asking us what it was (good time to tell a little about the church and about the meaning of baptism).  We got it all set up because we are using it this weekend for our baptism service and had to make sure everything worked.  Currently most of it fit in the back of my truck and there are a few pieces in some other vehicles.  We’re really looking forward to using it this Sunday as we celebrate the change that Jesus has brought into several people’s lives.

WHERE YOU CAN BUY THIS BAPTISMAL:

Since I wrote the above blog, several people have asked what we think about this baptismal pool and where we bought it.  You can find out more information about this baptismal pool and buy it at http://www.portablebaptistry.com/.

We have really enjoyed using this baptismal pool.  It is easy to set up and take down.  One person can do the set up and tear down; however, it can be difficult for one person, so I would recommend at least 2 people.  You can set up the pool and fill it with water in approx. 1 1/2 hours.  The pool looks great and works very well for baptisms.  The only downside is the fact that even when broken down it still requires a great deal of room.  This may not be a problem if you have your own building with a storage closet.  We are currently a portable church, so it can be difficult to transport if you don’t have a trailer (at least an enclosed 6 ft. or 8 ft. trailer).  It would not all fit in the back of my Dodge Dakota pick-up truck.

Overall, great baptism pool especially if you have your own building.  A little hard to transport without a trailer if you’re a portable church.

I hope this information helps!
