Baptisms, Funerals/Memorials and Weddings

The church is ready to support you through all the stages of your life – and those of your loved ones.

 

Baptisms

“Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.”  – Romans 6:4

Baptism is a milestone on every Christians faith journey.  In the United Methodist Church, baptism is considered a “means of [God’s] Grace.”  In it is expressed God’s irrepressible love for us, forgiving our sins and incorporating us into Christ’s Church.  You can learn more about the United Methodist understanding of baptism here, or by speaking with our pastor.

Baptisms in our church are always performed during our Sunday worship, when the congregation is present to make a covenant to nurture the faith of the person being baptized.

If you are interested in being baptized or would like to have your child baptized, please fill out and submit the following form to the Church Office:

Weddings

“Go therefore into the main streets, and invite everyone you find to the wedding banquet.”  – Matthew 22:9

Christian marriage services are available through our pastor, and may be held in the Sanctuary or at another location.  The full requirements are outlined on the Wedding Information Form.

Funerals / Memorials

“When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.”  – Psalm 94:19

Upon the sad event of a loved one’s passing, the support of the church is especially important.  In such distressing times, we may discover Christ’s presence close at hand through the Christian celebrations of a person’s life in the Sanctuary, a funeral home, or at the graveside.  In the days that follow, our faith becomes a source of consolation and hope.

If we can be of help to you in your grief, please fill out and submit the following form to the Church Office:
