Believing that baptism is an act of the church through which God offers grace, the United Methodist Church practices the baptism of persons of any age, ranging from infant to adult. All United Methodist baptisms take place in the context of a worship service. Because it is a divine act, we recognize as valid the baptisms of churches of other denominations and do not baptize persons more than once. In baptism, the congregation promises to care for and nurture the faith of the one being baptized. Therefore, we baptize those infants, children, and adults who will continue to be part of the life of the church.
We celebrate Holy Communion about once per month. Worshippers of all ages, including non-UMC members, are welcome to receive the communion bread and juice.
