Pastoral Services of Baptism, Blessings, and Renewal of Baptism

God’s blessings attend all of God’s children. Baptism is a holy moment when the action of God’s blessing is confirmed in the community of God’s people the church. Baptism is available for infants, children, youth and adults. There is no wrong or right age. If parents are responding to the call of God to raise their children in the community of God’s love and faith in Christ, then the pastor and church will work with them to plan a baptism. If a child, youth, or adult has responded to the love of God poured out to them by expressing interest in being baptized and included in God’s family of faith, then the pastor and church will work with them to plan a baptism. If someone desires faith renewal, the pastor will explore alternatives. If someone seeks a blessing rather than baptism, the pastor will discuss options.

Pastoral Services for Other Life Moments

There is nothing that can separate those embraced by Christ from God’s love and blessing. Therefore, everything in life can be brought under God’s profound blessing. It doesn’t make bad things good, but brings God’s perspective to all of life’s situations. The pastor and church are available to bless homes, cars, pets, graduations, reunions, and vacations.
