Join us as we celebrate the beginning of a beautiful faith journey. Here at Perry Highway Lutheran Church, we welcome infants, children, and adults to receive the sacrament of baptism by the guidelines of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.”
Baptism is a sacred rite and a means of grace, marking the recipient’s initiation into the Christian faith. It symbolizes the washing away of sin, the awakening of faith, and the individual’s incorporation into God’s family. We use water and the words, ‘I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.’
1. Inquiry and Initial Contact: Contact us via email or call our church office. We’ll connect you with our pastoral team to discuss the baptism process.
2. Pre-Baptism Meeting: A meeting with the minister will be arranged to discuss the significance of baptism and answer any questions you might have. This meeting will include parents and godparents or sponsors for the baptism of infants or young children.
3. Scheduling: We will work with you to schedule the baptism during a regular Sunday service, allowing the congregation to witness and participate in welcoming the new member into the Christian faith.
