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.
During Phase 2/3 of the COVID-19 Reopening we are offering private baptisms at our Sykesville Historic Church.
First and second-time parents will attend a preparation class. A date for their baby’s Baptism may be scheduled upon completion of the class.
Parents who have attended two baptism preparation classes at SJCC for two of their children do not need to attend any additional classes.
Prospective parents are encouraged to participate in the Baptism Preparation Classes during the pregnancy.
Baptism classes are typically held the second Thursday of each month from 6:00 – 8:30 pm. During Phase 2/3 of the COVID-19 Reopening, the classes are being offered on-line via Zoom. Schedule your baptism prep class by clicking here.
