In our tradition, a person is eligible for baptism at any point in their life journey. We observe two (2) sacraments, Baptism and Holy Communion. Baptism is “an outward and visible sign of the grace of God. As the promise of the gospel is not only to us but also to our children, baptism with water and the Holy Spirit is the mark of their acceptance into the care of Christ’s church, the sign and seal of their participation in God’s forgiveness, and the beginning of their growth into full Christian faith and discipleship.”
Holy Communion is a central part of our life together. We celebrate this sacrament a minimum of twice a month, on the first and third Sunday. During Lent, when we have evening services, we offer Holy Communion every week. In our part of the United Church of Christ, we celebrate the “real presence” of Christ in this sacrament. This table is open to all who wish to know the presence of Christ. Every year we have an introduction to Holy Communion for children and their parents for those who want the sacrament available to them.
