Today, October 11, 2009, was Baby Dedication for Baby KP. As you can see, this is a family affair with the whole church promising to back the family up. The family promises to raise the child dedicated to God in a manner of teaching and showing by example what it means to be a Christian.

There were 47 dedicated today, they do this two times a year. You can see there was no space up front for the grandparents. But you can be assured we were present in the congregation.

The stage at the church is a full 360 circle. There is not front or back. Behind the families and infants the choir circles the stage standing on steps.

The picture on the right is taken in the nursery area. The 'nursery lady' for babies to age two said she had 270 in attendance today. Church membership total for all five campuses is over 50,000 members. Karen and Billy's church, the "West" campus in Katy, Texas, seems to have it's 10,000 portion. The place was packed today.

This second portion really isn't too blogworthy except that my little Camera, a pocket sized Sony W-55 7.2 MegaPixel, just rolled over in the count.

The picture on the left is # 9,999 and the one on the right is 10,001. I erased # 10,000 as it didn't know what it was something to save and the picture wasn't good.

On the left is the overhead monitors for the auditorium.

On the right is Dr. Ed Young preaching this morning at the Second Baptist Church Houston Texas at the Katy, Texas, Campus. He may be on some of your TV stations with his program.
