Abigail’s Baptism

Sunday was a special day for Abigail and our family.  This summer during vacation bible school Abigail asked Jesus to live in her heart and she made a profession of faith.  We continued to talk about this decision with her all summer long.  She then went through a program at our church called “New You”.  During this class they talk more about this decision and what it means for their life.  Once the class is completed their next step is to follow through with a baptism in front of our church body.  So this past Sunday our extended family came to celebrate this glorious day.

Before she was baptized we took a family picture of just the three of us.

Abigail and her sweet friend Molly were both dedicated as babies on the same day (9/13/09) and then were baptized on the same day (11/13/16) – so special!!

Danny was able to baptize Abigail, which was the most special moment Sunday morning.

Finally when a child is dedicated as a baby in our church they give us a letter to give to the child when they are baptized (or make a profession of faith).  We gave this letter to Abigail Sunday afternoon.  It was so wonderful to hear her read the letter that was written to her 7 years ago.
