A Simple Service for Baptism Anniversaries

Many churches feel the anniversaries of baptism and thanksgivings should be followed up. This simple service was designed by Rev Jean Price as a brief, but liturgical service full of meaning, but not heavy.  It is designed as part of "an event" with family activities afterwards. 

Welcome to this Baptism & Thanksgiving Anniversary Celebration
Introduction and Opening Prayer

Chorus:             If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands

Story time/Talk

Prayers, to include:

Lord Jesus Christ, we confess to you now 

the wrong things we have done,

the wrong things we have said,

the wrong in our hearts: please forgive us

and help us to live as you want us to. Amen.

 

God our creator,

we thank you for the gift of these children,

entrusted to our care.

May we be patient and understanding,

ready to guide and to forgive,

so that through our love

they may come to know your love;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

As our Saviour taught us, so we pray,

All:                   

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name.

Your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins,

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours 

now and for ever.     Amen.

Jesus’ love is very wonderful
