My Childhood Church......
was the scene of this:
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's 1-year-old daughter, Violet, has been baptized at Christ Church United Methodist, where the actress' parents are members.
Pastor Randall Flanagan said members of the congregation weren't star-struck _ or didn't show it too much _ when the Hollywood couple showed up on Christmas Eve with their daughter.
Garner, a Charleston native, won a Golden Globe Award for her starring role as agent Sydney Bristow in the TV series "Alias," which ended its five-year run in May. Movie credits for the 34-year-old actress include "Elektra" and "13 Going on 30."
Affleck, also 34, is nominated for a Golden Globe Award for playing George Reeves, star of the 1950s TV show "Adventures of Superman," in "Hollywoodland." He won a screenwriting Oscar with Matt Damon in 1998 for "Good Will Hunting."
I was baptized at that church in 1941.
