Baptism is one of the two sacraments recognized by our church community that celebrates God’s gift of grace through Jesus Christ, the other is the Lord’s Supper (Communion.) The baptism of infants and children is based our recognition that God’s grace reaches out to us before we are able to respond or comprehend his goodness. Baptism is a community event celebrated in Sunday worship service. If you are a member who wishes to baptize your child, please make an appointment to speak to one of our pastors. Contact us.
This year, we are trying something new! The communion workshop material will be covered in 2 Sunday School classes. The 2 classes will take place from 10:25-11:15 on January 2016. The workshop material will be taught in the 3rd & 4th grade Sunday School class. 1st and 2nd graders are invited to join us for these 2 weeks as well, if you feel that your child would benefit from learning more about communion. At least one adult should plan to attend with the child(ren) participating in the workshop. If you feel that your 1st or 2nd grade student is ready for communion, we would be happy to have you attend this class with him or her. Please do keep in mind that your child will be a part of this workshop in 3rd & 4th grade as well. That being said, it doesn’t hurt to learn about communion for more than just 2 years—we are all constantly growing in our understanding of this sacrament.

Second Grade Bible Celebration
Second Grade Bible Celebration, Spring 2016, recognizes our children’s development and their growing ability to read and comprehend the richness and meaning found in a standard Bible. Children receive Bibles from the church during a worship service each Spring and attend a Bible Celebration party with their families. Please contact Rev Kristin Mueller for more information.
