SACRAMENTS OF THE CHURCH

There are two sacraments celebrated in the life of the church, that reflect our special relationship with God in the journey of faith we share.  All fellow Christians are welcomed to partake in these sacred rites.  If you would like more information or insight, please call the pastor.

Holy Communion: As a family of faith, we celebrate the joy of Christ's living love among us, by sharing the Lord's Supper together on the first Sunday of every month, and other times in the liturgical life of the Christian church.  Children are always welcomed to enjoy this special time with us as we break bread and pass a cup of juice amongst us.  Communion is normally served on the first Sunday of every month, and on other high holy days in the liturgical life of the church.  

 

Christian Baptism: The church practices the rite of celebrating new life in Christ, by sprinkling a few drops of water upon the head of a person young or old in Christian baptism.  It is also a time of promise and dedication  to symbolically stand behind a person of faith, in a show of support and affirmation in their journey to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.  Please call the church office, if you would like to talk more about a service of baptism at the church.
