For a couple as low-key as Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, it was fitting that their daughter’s baptism was a down-home affair.

Little Violet Affleck, who turned 1 on Dec. 1, was baptized on Christmas Eve at Christ Church United Methodist in Charleston, W. Va., where her mother grew up.

Garner’s parents, sister and brother-in-law are members of the church, where Violet’s cousin Alex was baptized the same day, the Associated Press reports.

If congregants were star-struck by the movie stars in their midst, they didn’t show it, Pastor Randy Flanagan told the AP.

Affleck, 34, a Golden Globe nominee for Hollywoodland, told PEOPLE earlier this month that he’s a hands-on dad: “Yes, I’ve changed diapers,” he said at a New York City screening of Hollywoodland. “Parenthood, the whole thing is wonderful. All the clichés that all the people bore you with are, in fact, true.”
