Baptisms

 
 
As a United Methodist congregation, we celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion (Eucharist/Lord's Supper) with all -- infants, children, youth, and adults.  There is neither age minimum nor limit on when a person can be baptized. We encourage all youth and adults who have not been baptized to talk with a member of the pastoral staff about the meaning of this sacrament.  Whenever there is a baptism, the congregation promises to surround that infant, child, youth, or adult with steadfast love and to help them become established in the Christian faith. Parents of children, as well as youth and adults, will have the opportunity to meet with one of our ministers to discuss the meaning of this sacred act before each baptism - which can be scheduled during either the 8:30am worship service in the Little Chapel, the 11:00am worship service in the Sanctuary, or The Gathering @ 5:05pm in the Ward Fellowship Hall.  During the 11am worship service, we celebrate infant and children's baptisms during the Children's Sermon time, encouraging children of all ages to be a part of this sacred and special tradition of the church. For more information about our United Methodist understanding of baptism, click here.
