Charis' Baptism

Charis Alene Porcella was baptized as a child of the Covenant on the 29th of December, 2013, by Reverend Dr. Alfred J. Poirier at Rocky Mountain Community Church, PCA in Billings MT. The session of Rocky graciously agreed to serve as proxy for the session of Covenant Presbyterian Church in Chattanooga, TN, so that Hannah’s parents could attend the ceremony. Charis' baptism was witnessed by Guy and Michelle Porcella (her paternal grandparents), Dr. Gene and Donna Holden (her maternal grandparents), Jeremy and Rebekah Carlson, and Ben and Olivia Holden (her maternal aunts and uncles), as well as the congregation of Rocky Mountain Community Church.

Charis’ dress was chosen by her mother because it reminded her of her own wedding dress. It is a “Baby Crochet Estella Dress” from a British clothing company called “Monsoon.” Both her mother and I hope it will become a family heirloom. Kristin Barrie, professional photographer and friend of the family, took the following pictures to commemorate the event.

Yay! Such a happy occasion. Praying that Charis never remembers a day when she didn't love and want to serve the Lord Jesus. The dress is even cuter on her than it was on the hanger and her expressions are just precious. Love the big smiles!! :) Great family photos too - so glad you have those to commemorate this special day.

P.S. Adam - you said she was baptised on the 29th of September; I think you meant to put December. :)
