Baptism

On Sunday, the Rev. Bill Ritter will be the preacher for both services and will baptize his granddaughter, as well.  It should be a special day!  In honor of that special event, here is a little more information about Baptism in the United Methodist Church from the United Methodist Church News.

Baptism: God’s Gift to Us All

The United Methodist Church recognizes the two sacraments in which Christ himself participated:  baptism and the Lord’s Supper.  Baptism joins Christians everywhere, and is a symbol of new life and forgiveness of sins. Persons of any age can be baptized once, and the method can be sprinkling, immersion or pouring.  Through baptism we are joined with the church and with Christians everywhere.
