Baptism Blessings, Sunday, October 29

For so many of us, our baptisms happened when we were very young.

For others of us, our baptisms happened in some other place than among our St. Paul’s family.

Since we all are to be committed to one another in “supporting our lives in Christ,” we are going to have a Sunday where we remember our Baptisms and receive a special blessing.

On Sunday, October 29th at the 10:30 am service, we will first ask to bless: All who have been baptized somewhere other than St. Paul’s, (We will bring children forward, and likely have adults stand in their pews.)

After we have recognized and blessed these persons, we will additionally bring forward ALL EIGHT-YEAR-OLDS who have been baptized (even if you were baptized at St. Paul’s).

As our brothers and sisters in the LDS church get baptized in their 8th year, is good for us to remember and celebrate our baptisms from when we were young.

Please plan on attending this special Sunday.

 

Faithfully,

 

Rev. Kurt
