Baptisms at Grace
Can my child be baptized at Grace if I’m not a member? We want to be your Christian home for more than just a day! So, it’s important to us that at least one of the parents of a child who is baptized at Grace is a member of Grace. For Lutherans, Baptism is a once-in-a-lifetime event. We pray for the Holy Spirit to be there, so that the Holy Spirit, like a dove, flies with us our whole lives, creating faith in our hearts when we hear the Gospel of Jesus. Parents and sponsors are there, promising to do everything they can to make sure the child being baptized actually hears the Gospel of Jesus … in worship, in Sunday School, from pastors, from other Christians involved in the life of the church. (So, yes, sponsors should be members of a church.) And the members of Grace are there at baptisms, promising to support children growing up in the church by keeping the church alive and well. (So, yes, Baptisms at Grace are done during worship, except in cases of extreme emergency.) If you have questions about Baptism at Grace or if you are interested in membership, please email Pastor Julie at email@example.com
