Max was baptized on June 10th at West End Community Church, where we are members. Our senior Pastor Carter Crenshaw baptized Max before the 10:30 service with the support of close friends and family. Afterward, we enjoyed the church service before we headed back home to celebrate Max's big day. Then, many of our friends and family joined us for a lunch at our house to help celebrate the special occasion.

Max was thinking, "you want me to do what today?"

Carter Crenshaw is our senior pastor at West End Community Church and he baptized Max. 

The baptismal ceremony took place in front of the whole congregation

What a sweet little prayer Max received as a gift...

"Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. Guard me safely through the night and wake me with the morning light. Amen!"

A sweet kiss from my sweet baby
