Jesus calls us to baptism in the Great Commission (Matthew 28) with His command to, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.” Kids! at the Crossing is thrilled when a child expresses interest in taking this big step of publicly expressing faith in and commitment to Jesus Christ.
In order to best prepare Kids! for baptism, we have some very specific steps we ask children to take. This is an interactive process that involves Mom and Dad. It is our desire that you join with us as we celebrate your child’s decision.
The first step in our process is to arrange an ice cream date with you, your child, and Miss Chelsea to talk through the child’s faith experience up to their decision to be baptized.
Once we’ve enjoyed ice cream together, we’ll register your child for our 3-week baptism class. The times and dates for these classes are determined by how many children are interested in being baptized. The first two weeks of our baptism class are just for the kids. On the third week, we ask parents to join us as we hear from a member of our Baptism Celebration Team on what to expect come Baptism Weekend.
If you think your child is ready to begin this exciting process, contact Pastor Erin Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org
