“By God’s gift and call, all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus are daily put to death so that we might be raised daily to newness of life.” Martin Luther
Water connected to the Word-God’s saving promise in Jesus Christ-is at the center of the baptismal celebration. This promise can be delivered to all people, infants to adults, and is a promise that never ends. We celebrate God’s gift of baptism in the midst of the worshiping assembly as a sign that in baptism we are made one with Christ and with the whole people of God.
If you would like to be baptized, or have your children baptized, please contact Pastor Elizabeth for more information.
Marriage is a gift of God, intended for the joy and mutual strength of those who enter it and for the well being of the whole human family.
At a person’s death, the church shares the grief of those who mourn and remembers the brevity of life on earth. At the funeral we give voice to sorrow, thank God for our loved one, and entrust this companion of ours into the hands of God. Trusting in God’s promise in baptism that we are claimed by Christ forever, we rest in the sure hope of the resurrection.
