BAPTISM & HOLY COMMUNION
Holy Baptism is a covenant between an individual and God. It is God’s word to us, proclaiming our adoption by grace, and our word to God, promising our response of faith and love. The Sacrament of Baptism also includes promises for the church and individual or family to be bonded together.
Persons of all ages can be baptized – infants, children, youth, and adults. God’s grace is available to all and at work in all.
The United Methodist Church recognizes baptisms from other faith traditions and churches, and therefore does not “re-baptize.” We do, however, allow you to remember you baptism at a special baptism worship service.
Please contact our pastor to discuss baptism.
Holy Communion is a sacrament in the United Methodist Church. This sacrament is often called by other names, including the Lord’s Supper, the Last Supper, and Eucharist.
In Holy Communion, we remember and proclaim God’s saving work through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are reminded again of the gifts of God’s grace and forgiveness given to each of us. In Communion, we celebrate what God is doing among us and in us.
In the United Methodist Church, Holy Communion is open to all persons. You do not have to be a member to participate. Communion is offered during worship once a month, typically on the first weekend of the month.
Our pastors are willing to serve Holy Communion at other times and place in the life of the community. Please call on them to serve Holy Communion to persons unable to travel to church.
