We just baptized our daughter this past Sunday (June 20, 2010) and incorporated many of these ideas to make it a memorable and meaningful event. Our church has not always treated baptism with the thoughtfulness it deserved, so we suggested some things to our worship coordinators that would help us move forward in that. I sewed a special banner for the occasion (using a design I found in Reformed Worship magazine as inspiration), we chose special hymns, had everyone who witnessed the baptism sign a photograph of our daughter as a way to affirm their part of the baptismal vows, and used a pitcher that had been given to my husban and I as a wedding gift to pour her baptismal water (some of which came from the Jordan River) into the font. It turned out to be a lovely service, and I heard lots of people say it was the nicest baptism our church has celebrated.
