Hello Grace Parents,
This Sunday at the Rossview Campus and next Sunday at the Kenwood Campus we’ll have Baptisms! This is always an exciting time for our church. For parents, the days leading up to such an epic Sunday is your opportunity to begin talking to your child about their Next Steps: salvation and if they are ready to be baptized.
Feeling insecure about talking to your child about salvation? Never fear! Simply go to http://www.gcomchurch.com/cs-baptism to download our Pre-Baptism Packet, which will help you and your child explore the Bible in order to uncover the truth about Salvation.
Here’s a great article about leading children in accepting Jesus into their lives:
After you’re confident that your child has accepted Jesus Christ into his or her heart, then the Next Step is for your child to understand Baptism. Plain and simple . . . Baptism is a way for us to show our family, friends, and the world what has happened inside of our hearts. When we are “dunked” underwater we are showing everyone how we’ve been buried with Jesus, and when we are raised from the water we are showing the world that we have been given a new life with Jesus Christ. Baptism doesn’t save us because we’re already saved when we ask Jesus into our hearts . . . Baptism is simply telling the world that we are saved.
Not enough? That’s ok! Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org for a Baptism Workbook to go over with your child.
Also, know that your Kids Pastor, Adam Bayne, is just a phone call, email, or text away . . . call me at 931-802-3585 or email me at email@example.com with questions.
There is nothing more important than you, the parent, taking out time to talk to your kids about Jesus . . . so make time this week to invest in the eternal life of your child.
If your child is ready for Baptism simply email Karen@gcomchurch.com letting her know that your child wants to be scheduled either at Rossview (June 17th) or at Kenwood (June 24th).
