In welcoming a child to a family, we celebrate one of life’s continuing miracles. We rejoice and share that happiness with our community of family and friends. Whether you choose to do so with a lovely Naming Ceremony or a more Traditional Baptism Service, your intention is the same. As parents you are announcing to the world your love for your child and also your hopes and dreams for their life. Additionally, you are giving your family and friends the opportunity to do the same.
The ceremony you choose for your child will be created specifically for all of you. It will reflect your feelings and beliefs and honor the traditions of your faith, including customs specific to your family and background. Contact Reverend Pamela and she will assist you in creating the ideal ceremony to welcome your child!
