Baptism

Baptism

Holy Baptism is the sacrament that initiates us into the household of faith. We believe that Holy Baptism is a gift through which God grants us forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation through the death and resurrection of Christ (as Martin Luther states in the Small Catechism.) Baptism also calls us to live as disciples of Jesus, using our particular gifts, skills and passions to share God’s love in our daily lives. We thank God daily for the gift of Baptism through which we are raised every day to new life in God.

Holy Baptism is celebrated at regular Sunday worship services. Baptisms are scheduled in consultation with Pastor Janot. Parents or those preparing for Baptism are encouraged to choose sponsors (or godparents) based on who will best support and encourage the newly baptized person’s growth in faith and discipleship.

This Week's Events...

  • Camino on Zoom

    June 3, 2020  10:00 am - 11:00 am

    Join us for Camino on Zoom Wednesdays at 10 am and 7 pm. As a world community we have not faced a pandemic in over a century. As those who are sheltering at home, this is an unfamiliar way for us to live. Being isolated at home, and advised to keep a distance of six feet between us and others, this time is a new journey for each of us and an opportunity to ask ourselves how will we be changed by this experience. To give us a chance to check in with each other and be mindful of this new time as an opportunity to grow in faith, we are offering a time for us to gather. We will check in, share our joys and struggles of sheltering in place, and pray together.
