We are excited that your child is interested in baptism! There is no greater event in the life of an adult or a child than to make the decision to trust Christ as his or her Savior. At GFC, we believe that the next step is to join with believers as they follow Christ’s example and publicly declare and celebrate their new life in Him through the act of baptism.
As you prepare for this faith milestone, we look forward to coming alongside you and your family. The baptism process for kids has been designed to allow each child to fully embrace this next step in his or her spiritual journey.
Is My Child Ready?
Before continuing to the next steps, we require all parents to read through this list. We want each child to fully understand the significance of baptism when they participate in the milestone.
The next step is to register below. You will receive a baptism packet with information to help you prepare for the big day.
You will be asked to set aside time for you and your family to watch a DVD that will take you through God’s Big Story. This is a great discussion starter for families to introduce or continue talking about the Gospel. Please watch this together and use the guide to talk about it. The DVD will be used as a point of reference to generate conversation during your child’s baptism interview. This is a great opportunity to invite siblings to participate!
After you've watched the DVD and discussed the information in the packet, contact Stacie Oligny to schedule a baptism interview with one of our Grace Kids ministry staff.
Last but not least, your child will prepare a testimony that will be shared via video on the day of his or her baptism.
Our next baptism services will be on October 8, 2017.
The deadline to be registered for the October baptism is Sunday, September 10.
Please feel free to submit your registration at any time. If the next approaching baptism services are full, you will be placed in queue for the following baptism once that date is set. Someone will contact you upon the receipt of your registration regardless. We look forward to walking alongside you in this next step of your Ultimate Journey!
