In our baptism, we are claimed by God and connected with one another through the waters of God’s grace. In this workshop, you will learn to make baptismal boxes which are special boxes designed to hold keepsakes of a baptism. We will dive a little deeper beyond the making of the boxes to explore a bit about the theology of baptism, how we remember and help others to remember our baptism. woodworking skills are not required.
