Baptism

 

The act of baptizing is essential to the church’s life. Proclaiming the Good News in such a way that people are moved to profess faith and be baptized is a charge given to the Christian community from the Risen Christ himself.

We are currently offering private baptisms at our Sykesville Historic Church.

 

Baptism Classes

First and second time parents are required to attend two sessions, which are held on the 2nd and 3rd Sunday of each month. While it is not necessary for the classes to be completed in the same month, please make sure you attend one of each session as the content differs.

Prospective parents are encouraged to participate in the Baptism Preparation Classes during the pregnancy.

Schedule your baptism prep class by clicking here.

A date for their baby’s Baptism can be scheduled upon completion of the class.
