Baptism FAQ's

We will meet 30minutes before the service start time in the downstairs conference room.  We will give you a nametag, take your picture,  introduce you to those that will be assisting you, and will give instructions as to how to enter and exit the pool.

You will have the opportunity to change clothes before and after the baptism.  Some people come to church in what they will go into the pool with, and some change into their baptism clothing once they get to church.  Regardless of how you want to do it, we simply ask that you wear a dark-colored t-shirt and shorts or something of a light fabric that will not soak up a lot of water.  Exiting the pool with jeans on means that you are leaving the pool with a LOT of water.  This is bad for the floors and the ceiling in the office below.  
Yes!  We have some if you forget, but bringing a unique towel will help you know that you are grabbing your towel when you exit the pool.  There will be a place for you to put your towel after the briefing and you will be standing in a spot where you can drip and dry off before you go into the changing room.
If everything works as it should, the water will be warm!

You can change clothes and stay up there the entire time if you wish.  You can also change into your baptism clothes and then go sit in the congregation until the time you are instructed to move to the upstairs area.

Yes!  We have a photography team that will take your pic as soon as you arrive and then several times in the baptism process.  Your family is welcome to take pics, but know that we have it covered and they can enjoy the moment!

We will compile all of the pictues taken and give you a link to download those pictures within a couple of weeks.  We will also present you with a certificate of baptism and a picture with a special note on the back.

If you have not already done so... YES!!! Each bulb represents someone that has given their heart to Jesus and / or followed the Lord in Believers Baptism since Renovation church began.  If you have not put one in, please go to the sign following the service and find the person with the ladder and the bulbs. Your friends and family will want to gather around and cheer you on as you let your light shine!
