We all belong to God and to one worldwide community of faith. All persons baptized - past, present and future - are connected to each other and to God through the sacrament of baptism. Baptism is a beginning when we celebrate God's love for the one baptized and their new life in Christ. It's a joyful time of welcoming that person into the Christian family. Infants, children, teens or adults can be baptized. If you have been baptized before in another tradition, we see your baptism as sacred. We celebrate baptisms during worship when the community is present because baptism includes the promise by the community to love, support and care for you on your life journey wherever it takes you.
Our confirmands work as a team as they learn and grow in faith in preparation for Confirmation of their 8th grade year. Students will not only learn about the Old and New Testaments and what it means to be a member of the church, they also engage in extensive faith formation. Students are encouraged to speak about what their faith means to them and will make "Faith Statements" to the church by being confirmed.

Love is a gift of God, and we celebrate the love and covenant that is embodied in marriage. Marriage is a covenant commitment that has its foundation in the faithfulness of God's love. Couples are asked to meet with our pastor for pre-marriage sessions and to plan a beautiful ceremony that fits the unique journey of the couple. Contact the church office if you're interested in getting married in our church.
Memorial services are an important time of gathering as a family and a community to celebrate the life of one who has been welcomed home into our Creator's eternal embrace. They offer a time to remember, grieve, support one another and pray. Special music, readings, scripture, and participation by family and friends are important elements in a memorial service as we give thanks for the one we love and celebrate the hope of Christ's resurrection.
