"Decatur Area Baby Dedication"

was a big hit on Mother's Day, May 8th, 2005...

This was our gift to our many young couples and many more from our surrounding area.

More than 60 infants, children, and parents filled the broad stage and steps of GBC, dedicating to the Lord!

Video, audio, and pictures of this event are below.
