shall we gather

Chad Kelly
Shall we gather at the river… or in this case the creek.

MadisonWe all gathered at the creek for a good old-fashioned baptism. Granddaughters Sarah and Madison were officially 'dunked' in the freezing waters by their pastor Chad Kelly. Family and friends and church members were there to share in this special day.

SarahI must say this method has more 'oomph' than the Methodist sprinkling! The shock of the cold mountain stream will help the girls always remember this day. We are so proud of them!

Thanks for sharing this family moment in photos. God bless you all.

By the way, Methodists "dunk" as well as sprinkle.

How neat to see these pics of such a memorable occasion for your family. PTL! And God bless.
We have a creek with very cold water too, but we also have a tank under the pulpit, in which they use heated water, for those not-so-hardy souls :)
