Baptism is a milestone that marks the beginning of your Christian journey. We want to support you as you explore taking this step of faith. This is an exciting moment no matter what your age.
Baptism services generally take place during Sunday morning celebrations of special significance in the life of our church, including: The Baptism of the Lord , The Presentation of the Lord, Easter, Pentecost, The Feast of All Saints, The Reign of Christ, and Christmas.
In baptism a person receives God’s gift of new life given in Jesus Christ, and is welcomed into the community of those who are on the journey of faith and following Jesus.
We have a process to help you prepare whether you are the parents of a baby or young child, or an adult or youth getting ready to take this step of faith. We want you to be well prepared to say yes to follow Jesus.
What you will receive:
- Quality Baptism preparation,
- A fully prearranged Baptism service
- The prayerful support of our faith community
- Our commitment to accompany you and your family on your faith journey
In return, we ask that you attend 3 Baptism preparation sessions, and regular Sunday worship services for at least five weeks prior to the baptism celebration.
We also ask that you consider joining one of our regularly offered Alpha discussion series as part of your on-going preparation and spiritual formation.
