5 Reasons to Love Our Baptism Party Checklist

1. Automatic Timeline

How long does it take to plan a baptism party, you ask? Since, everyone has their own specific situations and timeframes we created a checklist that will help you countdown the days till your baptism party. Just add the day you started planning the baptism party, along with what day you’ll be holding it, and each task included in the worksheet will get an assigned due date! This will help you plan and make sure you have everything taken care of in time to celebrate your child's introduction into your faith!

2. Visuals

Our template is formatted to help you easily see what tasks need to get done, and which should have higher priority.

Find the perfect venue for a baptism? Check the box in the row for choosing a venue, and it will turn green. This helps you visually spot which tasks are still outstanding.
