Did you know. . .
Baptism Certificates are tangible recognition from the church of significant milestones in each child's spiritual journey and of their commitment to Christian living. Presentation of certificates helps the church build relationships with children in the congregation. At the same time, certificates help children remember and respond to their covenant relationship with God, church, and neighbor.
The Cross and Flame symbol relates The United Methodist church to God through Christ (cross) and the Holy Spirit (flame). The flame is a reminder of Pentecost when witnesses were unified by the power of the Holy Spirit and saw "tongues, as of fire" (Acts 2:3).
