We celebrate adult and infant baptisms for members of our congregation as well as members of other churches and for others seeking a church connection.
Infant baptism is a celebration of the gift of life that God gives us all and a recognition of the important calling of Christian parenting.

Baptisms are held during the 9:30 am worship service. Baptisms are scheduled throughout the year. You are invited to visit us on Sundays to see if we feel like a good faith community for you.
To schedule a baptism contact the church office.
