Holy Baptism and Unified Service
January 7 at 9:30 am-11:00 am
On Sunday, January 7, 2018, please welcome the newest members of our community of faith as they are baptized at the unified service taking place at 9:30 am.
Holy Baptism is the sacramental rite of full initiation, by water and the Holy Spirit, into membership in the Christian church. All members of the congregation renew their own Baptismal Covenant and welcome the newly baptized into the community of faith.
This brings to an end the season of Christmas. The Church recalls Our Lord’s second manifestation or epiphany, which occurred on the occasion of His baptism in the Jordan. Jesus descended into the River to sanctify its waters and to give them the power to beget children of God. The event takes on the importance of a second creation in which the entire Trinity intervenes.
