We want to help you stay in touch with God and each other during a season when you’re soaking in sunshine, stepping out of your fall-to-spring routine and looking to recharge. How about a 4-week book club?! There are no rules to follow – just have fun, be casual, and build community with other women!

When: You decide when and how often (don’t let us limit you with our 4-week suggestion)
Where: Your back patio, the coffee shop, the park…be creative!
Who: Invite friends, neighbors, co-workers, family…who has God put in your path?!

The first step is a mandatory Parent Class that you need to attend. This one-hour class is informal, more like a discussion, and we want you to ask any questions that you may have so you feel comfortable and enjoy the ceremony. You can have your child/children in the Nursery or Kids program during this class. At the class you will receive Bible teaching concerning baptism & dedication for babies.

After you have taken the class, you will receive a special link to register for the ceremony. In addition, we don't do this ceremony the months of Christmas or Easter.
