* Would you like to be Baptized? If the answer is yes, we remind you that we are ordained United Church of Christ clergy, that means we can do Baptism of children and adults. Rev.

But if you would like this without having purchased a wedding package, we do charge a small mileage fee outside of Minot, ND to cover the transportation expenses.
