Here at Peachtree, the covenant of baptism is one of the most significant parts of our worship. In baptism, God claims your child as His own and is at work in the life of your child from the very beginning. The age requirement for infant baptism is 18 months of age or younger.
Not only is baptism a special occasion for your family, it is a spiritual beginning for your child. In baptism, you are committing to raise your child to know and follow Jesus. As the primary spiritual leader in your child’s life, your confession of faith stands in for your child until the day when your child makes their own decision to follow Jesus as Savior and Lord.
As your faith community, the entire church walks with you in this decision by partnering with you to raise your child to know the stories of Scripture and the ways of a disciple.
We look forward to years of Worship, Sunday School classes, Vacation Bible Schools, Camps, Faith Milestones, Family Mission Trips and more!
To move forward with baptizing your child at Peachtree, please review the below requirements:
The child being baptized must be 18 months of age or younger.
At least one parent must be an active and local member of Peachtree Presbyterian Church.
At least one parent must attend a Baptism Workshop prior to the Baptism Sunday selected, even if a Baptism Workshop was attended for another child. The workshop provides vital information regarding the theology of baptism as well as the details for the baptism day.
If you are ready to have your child baptized, we invite you to choose a Sunday and complete the information online. If you need more information, you may also contact Cori Temple at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 404-842-2188.
