Baptisms and weddings


Baptisms

Baptism is a partnership between God, parents and the congregation working together for the spiritual well-being of the child. The service of baptism provides for promises to be made by parents and congregation. Parents promise to provide a Christian home where the child will experience the love of God through their care and example of their faith. The congregation promises to provide a community in which the child feels safe and where they will experience the love of God through the leadership of every Church member. Please contact us for more information.

Weddings
