At First United Church of Christ, we welcome both children and adults to the sacrament of baptism with water and the Holy Spirit. With baptism, we celebrate God’s abundant love and grace, and we mark an important moment in the journey of faith. As part of this tradition, the church expresses its support and care to the individuals being baptized and their families.
Baptisms are usually celebrated during our Sunday worship service, and the act of baptism itself is performed by marking the forehead with water. Families and sponsors (or Godparents), are invited to come forward with the candidate for the rite of baptism. If you are interested in baptism for your child or yourself, please be in touch with either of our ministers.
