Phoebe's Baptism

Last Sunday October 2nd, we baptized Phoebe.  It was a special day for us as we welcomed her into the covenant family.  Chris and I made vows: acknowledging Phoebe's need of the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ and the renewing grace of the Holy Spirit, claiming God's covenant promises in her behalf and to look in faith to Jesus for her salvation as well as our own, and thirdly to dedicate Phoebe to God promising that we will endeavor to set before her a godly example and that we will pray with and for her and bring her up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

It was also a blessing to stand before our church and know that this congregation of the body of Christ will stand beside us to help teach, nurture and love her.

We are very serious listening and responding to our charges to raise Phoebe in a Christian home

Because Chris is an ordianed minister in the Presbyterian Church of America (PCA) he is able to preform the sacrament of baptsim and therefore baptized Phoebe!  It was his first baptism (you don't baptize many infants in college ministry...) and a sweet time for both daddy and baby.

With Reverend David Hall 

Cece, Grandpa, Uncle Chris, Mamo, Papo and Caylee came to celebrate the special occasion
