Remembering And Renewing Our Baptismal Covenant

During worship on May 4th we will be confirming and receiving into church membership 10 youth from our congregation, on May 11th during the first service we will be receiving 10 adults into church membership, and on May 18th during the first service we will be celebrating an infant baptism.

All of these rituals are grounded in our baptismal covenant, and a part of this covenant are our promises to “surround these persons with a community of love and forgiveness,” and to “faithfully participate in our church’s ministries by our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.”

May these celebrations in the life of our congregation be an occasion for all of us to remind ourselves of the covenant we share with one another in Christ, and to recommit ourselves to faithfully participating in the life and ministry of our church.
