Q: What if my child wants to be baptized?
A: At Meck, we believe kids can choose to become a follower of Jesus. Which means kids can and should get baptized! If you think your child is ready for this important next step, you and your child will need to take the Baptism Orientation class. Fill out the Baptism Interest Form and learn about the next baptism orientation and celebration.
Q: Do you baptize babies?
A: We believe baptism should follow a conscious decision to become a follower of Jesus. Because of that, we do not baptize babies. Instead we offer Baby Dedication. Dedication is an event for parents of babies to come together with the church and commit to raising their child in a Christ-Centered home. Fill out the Baby Dedication Interest Form to learn more about this next step for your child.
