Children’s Ministries is excited to offer traditional children’s baptisms for ages infant through grade 5. At Hosanna!, we teach that Jesus instituted Holy Baptism, that God truly acts in this sacrament, and that faith is essential for its effectiveness.
Traditional children’s baptisms have a 30 minute mandatory class prior to the family service. Sponsors/Godparents, if applicable, are encouraged to attend the class with the parents so they can effectively assist parents in supporting the child’s faith journey. No child care is offered for the class or service.
To help your family plan the special day, the agenda is included below.
Check-in: 9:15-9:30 a.m.
Class: 9:30-10 a.m.
Break: 10-10:15 a.m. (Families usually come at this time to join the parents/Godparents)
Baptism Service: 10:15-11 a.m.
*Please note: Due to numerous events at Hosanna!, celebrations will need to be held off- site after the baptism service.*
Space is limited for every class. Please do not register until you have confirmed with all the family schedules that it is a date your family is able to attend. In order to allow time to notify other wait-listed families, cancellations are only accepted up to 2 weeks prior to class. Please plan accordingly.
Children’s baptisms are held on the dates below. Registration is offered online. In order to honor all families that are requesting baptisms, only one registration is allowed per family, per date. If there are multiple registrations, they will not be processed.
Other 2014 dates (Registration not open yet): April 12, May 17, or August 9
