LEGACY ORIENTATION

OVERVIEW

Welcome to Legacy! We are so excited you decided to participate in marking a special moment in your family’s life. As parents, you have more influence in your child’s life than anyone else, and what happens at home is most important. We hope you find Legacy to be a helpful process for laying down the foundational beliefs and values you want to instill in your family. As your church, we’re excited to partner with you along the way. Mike has a few words to share about the legacy with which you have been entrusted.

Step 3: Invite your Friends

At the Legacy event, each family will be seated at a table with 10 seats available for you to invite your family, friends, or small group members to join you on this special day as you mark this celebration.We encourage you to invite people who will be most influential in your child’s future. (We understand the desire to have more than 10 people there to mark this occasion, but due to the intimate and relational format of this celebration, and also due to space constraints, we ask you to keep your table to 10 chairs. Many families opt to invite their extended relatives and friends who could not be at the Legacy event out to lunch afterward, or to their home for a private celebration that can be extended to as many people as you would like.)

Step 4: Day of Event

Please arrive at 9:45 a.m. to get your family checked in. We can help you and your guests find your seat and will have some light refreshments for you to enjoy. Please bring your homework questions with you so you can discuss them as a family during the event. Legacy will begin at 10am and will go for about an hour.

F.A.Q.s

What time does the event start and how long will it last? The doors open at 9:30 a.m. for families to check-in, grab some refreshments, and find their table. The event will start at 10:00 a.m. and usually end around 11:00 a.m. We try to keep the event to an hour. Because of this, your timeliness is requested.

Is there food? Yes, there will be light refreshments, as well as coffee and water.

What should we wear? Wilmington is a casual town and PC3 is a casual church, so feel free to dress comfortable and casually. We always see a wide range of dress, from Sunday Best to casual and comfortable, so you can choose to wear whatever you desire.

Are children allowed? We strongly encourage you to bring the child you are dedicating on this day, as well as any other siblings of that child. In regards to other children you might want to invite (nieces, nephews, etc.) please keep in mind that there are only 10 seats per table, and we encourage you to fill those seats with the adults in your life who will most influence and support you as a parent.
