Quinceañera Bilingual Ceremony
We are here today to celebrate and to give God thanks for all the things He has done and is going to do in the life of Miss Lexi. This is a time of sharing and reflecting on your life with your parents, grandparents, padrinos, and friends as we all celebrate your 15th birthday together.
Muy amados en el Señor Jesucristo, nos hemos reunido aquí, en la presencia de Dios para celebrar un culto de acción de gracias por motivo de la celebración de los quince años de la señorita Lexi, Esta celebración es un tiempo de Acción de Gracias para recibir la vida y todas las responsabilidades que vienen con ello. Pero esta vida debe ser compartida con el amor de Dios como usted sigue y mantiene los mandamientos de Dios. La Vida es crecimiento, y crecimiento es vida madurez. Una persona madura es el que que puede tomar decisiones y compromisos, y ser fiel a ellos, no importa que difícil sea.
This celebration is a time of Thanksgiving as you enter into a new season in your life and all the responsibilities that come with this new season. But this life must be shared with the love of God as you follow and keep God’s commandments. Life is growing and growing in life is maturity. A mature person is one who can make decisions, commitments and can complete them no matter how difficult they are.
Débemos colocarnos en la presencia de Dios y recordar nuestra necesidad de la piedad divina de Dios en nuestras vidas. Débemos pedir a Dios que nos quite todo el pecado y perdonarnos de la vida mala . . . . . .
This is a happy age, when young girls hold many dreams. But also it is a difficult age because it is at this age when a young lady becomes accountable for her spiritual life. From now on Miss Lexi you’ve ceased to be a little girl for you have become a young lady. Your parents have done what they can in rearing you in the admonition of the Lord, but you will now begin to make decisions and get ready for a little more independence. It is during this time that you will need Jesus as your friend, counselor and above all as Savior.
Esta es una edad feliz, Pero también es una edad difícil porque es en esta edad cuando se les hace responsable por sus vidas. De hoy en adelante esta señorita deja de ser una niña y entra a la edad de la juventud. Sus decisiones ahora tendrán más peso y cordura. Es en este tiempo que más necesita de Jesús como amigo, consejero y sobre todo como Salvador. . . . .

Presentation and Blessing of the Quinceañera Gifts:
1. Rosary and Bible: Rosa and Galdino 2. Earrings: Thelma and Seth
3. Bracelet: Sue and Bob 4. Shoes: Marcelo
5. Crown: Juana
This crown is beautiful and radiant, but how much more glorious and beautiful will the crown which Christ will give you on that day be? The Bible mentions a few crowns. Which ones do you want? The first crown promised is the crown of life. To obtain it the Lord says " be faithful till the end and I will give you the crown of life." For those that persevere He has promised " the incorruptible crown ", (1 Cor. 9:25). To those who long for His coming He has promised "the crown of righteousness", (2 Tim. 4:8). Can you imagine how much more beautiful it will be when you stand before the Lamb, and you can do just as the twenty-four elders mentioned in Revelations, "lay your crown before Him and say Holy, Holy, Holy, thank you for redeeming me"?
Haga Jehová resplandecer su rostro sobre ti, y tenga de ti misericordia. Alce Jehová sobre ti su rostro y ponga en ti paz.
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.
And now ladies and gentlemen let me present to you for the very first time Princess Lexi
