Baptism is an event for the whole church.
Through baptism, we embrace the promises of the gospel, celebrate new life in Christ, and welcome new members into the life of the Church. We also promise to support the baptized in the life of faith.
Therefore, baptism is incorporated into our primary worship services throughout the year on specific Sundays. There are no baptisms during the seasons of Advent or Lent.
Our clergy prepare parents of infants and children, and adult candidates, for baptism by explaining the meaning of baptism in the Christian tradition and the baptismal service itself, while offering practical guidance about growing in faith individually and as a family.
For infants and young children, the Preparation for Baptism course is one meeting, lasting 75–90 minutes, between parents of infants, young children, and our clergy. We offer this throughout the year on designated Saturday mornings and Monday evenings. Adults who desire to be baptized meet individually with our clergy.
