Baptism

If you have placed your trust in Christ as your Savior, baptism is your next step. As your church family, we’re excited to celebrate this moment with you! We hold special baptism services several times a year, and we offer classes before each one to prepare you for this meaningful step in your faith. Learn more about our baptism classes below, and please reach out with any questions.

 

Upcoming Baptism Services

  • Sunday, October 14, 1:15 p.m.

Baptisms are usually held in our Multi-Purpose Room, but the baptism on October 14 will work a little differently. We are celebrating the 20th anniversary of our church that day, so baptism will be held outside during our family picnic. Registration for this baptism ceremony has ended, but please reach out to Julie MacManus with any questions.

 

Baptism Classes

We offer classes for believers in four different age groups: adults, youth (junior high and high school students), preteens, and children. These classes help participants understand the meaning of baptism and make wise decisions about taking part in this important event.

Adults

To prepare for baptism, adults must attend a preparation. This one-session class is held on select Sundays at 12:30 p.m. Registration is required. For details on upcoming class dates, contact Julie MacManus.

 

Junior High and High Schoolers

To prepare for baptism, students in grades seven through twelve must attend a luncheon with our Student Ministries leaders. For details on the next class date and how to sign up, reach out to Molly Jennerich, the Ministry Coordinator for Student Ministries.

 

Preteens

To prepare for baptism, preteens in fifth and sixth grades must attend a baptism orientation with at least one parent. Led by Pastor Dave Carl, this orientation covers the mechanics of the baptism service and how parents can be involved. For details on our next orientation, please send an e-mail to Christine Clark with your name and the name of your child along with his or her grade level.

 

Elementary Children

To prepare for baptism, children in third and fourth grades must attend our baptism orientation with at least one parent. Led by Pastor Dave Carl, this orientation covers the mechanics of the baptism service and how parents can be involved.
