Baptism is a recognition of God’s love and mutual response making a difference in the world. Celebration of the sacrament of Baptism is a commitment to faith, to God, to Jesus and to the Holy Spirit, demonstrated through a desire to belong to our faith community. Baptism implies commitment for further congregational involvement of the families seeking baptism, thus allowing the congregation to live out their promises to support and encourage the faith journey of the baptized individual and their family.

Baptisms are held periodically throughout the year during Sunday Worship.
