Baptism & Communion


Sacraments are those unique activities in a faith community that draws us close to God, as a way to experience an invisible presence through a very visible moment.

The Presbyterian Church recognizes two sacraments. Baptism is a sign and seal of God’s activity in our lives. It is a welcome into the family of faith. We recognize all Christian baptisms done in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and if you have been baptized once, you do not need to be baptized again. If you are interested in baptism for yourself or for your child, speak to a pastor. In preparation, the pastor will schedule a time to meet with you to discuss the sacrament. The other sacrament in the Presbyterian Church, communion, is a celebration of remembrance of Christ's work and ministry. Theologically, it draws us back to Jesus’ Last Supper and before that to the first Passover meal. It draws us forward to a great heavenly banquet. Everyone is welcome to share in the meal. Communion is shared weekly at the 8:45 a.m. casual service. At the 11:00 a.m. Sanctuary Service, this sacrament is celebrated on selected, special Sundays.
