Baptism

We celebrate two sacraments, Baptism and Communion.
Baptism can occur at any age. For an adult tt occurs in conjunction with a profession of faith and admission to church membership.
The children of believing parents bring their child for Baptism and promise to raise their child to love and serve God.
The entire congregation promises to support the family.
The Minister makes the sign of the cross with water on the person’s head in Baptism.
The waters of Baptism symbolize refreshment, cleansing, new life, the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.
Baptism is an act of the whole church and a sign of church membership, so Baptism always happens in the presence of the worshiping congregation. When a child is baptized at least one of the parents must be a confessing member of the church.

Funerals

The Christian funeral is a worship service where we gather to celebrate and honor the life of our loved one, to remember the ways their life touched ours, to entrust our loved one into the keeping of God and to offer our love and support to one another.
We also come together to bear witness to our hope in Jesus Christ, who said, “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live and everyone who lives and believe in me will never die.” With faith in Christ, we lift up our hearts to God, that the Lord may bless everyone with the strength and peace of God’s Holy Spirit.
