Baptism at St. Luke’s
In Baptism – among other things – one is incorporated into the local church. They become a “baptized member” of St. Luke’s. Therefore, it is important that there be a connection and relationship with the individual being baptized and St. Luke’s UMC.
Part of what happens in the baptism ceremony is the congregation makes promises to the child (person being baptized) to surround the individual with love, support and care. The parents, family and sponsors or godparents also make a promise to raise the child in the local church – to be active in Worship, as well as Grow, Serve and Connect opportunities. We take these promises seriously. That is one of the reasons why we strive to provide the best nursery, Sunday School, Children’s and Youth Ministries to do our best to live into that baptismal promise.
