Welcome to Advent Lutheran Church!

         
         
   
 

Check List for Adult Baptism
 

 



 

Consider inviting family and friends to participate in the special day.

Provide directions to the church.

Decide if hosting a Baptismal party celebration after worship is desirable and make arrangements accordingly.

Choose sponsors if desired. A sponsor is someone who can encourage you in your Baptismal promises, answer questions of faith, and nurture you in your spiritual growth.

Decide if a special outfit will be worn for the Baptism. While optional, the traditional color of the outfit is white to symbolize the new life one receives from God.

Be prepared to bring a camera and film to church. While only non-flash pictures taken from one’s seat are permitted during worship, any desired pictures with pastors, family, and friends may be taken after the service.

Arrive at the church thirty minutes before worship and see the Pastor in his/her office for final details.

Sit in the reserved area in the Sanctuary.

Following the service, remember to take the Baptismal napkin, certificate, candle, and memento with you.

Pray daily about your spiritual growth.

We look forward to seeing you in Sunday School and worship and in participating in the life of the congregation.
