Planning ahead: baptism fireside “It’s Great to be 8!”

As you look ahead, think about scheduling a fireside to prepare children for baptism. Some children have January birthdays, so it’s never too soon to plan! Sometimes this special fireside is held on a ward level, sometimes on a stake level. 

Looking for ideas? Check out Jackie’s post: “It’s Great to be 8!” Fireside for Children Preparing for Baptism

While this fireside is optional, it does help the children to go beyond the mechanics and the excitement of being in the spotlight, and truly understand the eternal significance of this first covenant (of many) they will make with their Father in Heaven.

“Now I say unto you, if this be the desire of your hearts, what have you against being baptized in the name of the Lord, as a witness before him that ye have entered into a covenant with him, that ye will serve him and keep his commandments, that he may pour out his Spirit more abundantly upon you?” Mosiah 18:10
