Alex and Max were baptised this Sunday afternoon. We go to kinda a big church (North Point Community Church) , so it was all done in kinda a big way. Alex's picture on the jumbo - tron screen.
A video of each child (made a few weeks prior) showed just before their turn. They talked about their favorite Bible verse, when they asked Jesus into their heart, thanked their family and small group leaders.
There was a party afterwards with cupcakes and these giant balloons. When they asked if we wanted to take one home - I was like "totally!"
I told him to jump but to make it look like he didn't jump.
How did people who don't have a suburban get their balloons home?
I am so proud of these boys. They asked to be baptised and Max hounded me until I took care of it.
Alex later asked me how much it cost and if we had to pay a lot.
Me: "Um, no - the church doesn't charge for that."
Alex: "I overheard a father dropping of his son and asking where he needed to go to pay."
Me: "He was paying $5 to get a DVD of the baptism."
Alex: "Oh, well good."
It was a really wonderful day.
