Holy cow, $100!!! That's alot I guess I didn't want ot give anything since I pay tons to the church for the kids to go to their school, I spoke to my friend who works in the church office today and she said for the most part people give $25.

I gave $100 for both of my sons. My church "recommended" $25.

On another note: we had a Deacon perform both Baptisms (they were private) and we tipped him both times. Is this the norm? Chat Icon

Yes, that's normal to tip. We were expected to tip the alter boys as well since it was a private ceremony. I think for private ceremonies you should give more.
