Sacraments

At Grace we celebrate two sacraments: Communion and Baptism.

Communion

Communion is a sacred time to renew and strengthen our faith. Grace Presbyterian Church is an inclusive community, and all are welcome to the table.

During Covid-19, we are celebrating communion virtually on the first Sunday of the month. You provide your own bread and juice, but the hospitality of our Lord Jesus Christ unites us.

During normal operations, communion is served the first Sunday of the month and at additional services throughout the year. We bring the elements straight to the pews for those who need it, and communion is delivered off site to members who are unable to attend. The "bread and wine" are gluten free bread and grape juice.

 

Baptism

Presbyterians describe baptism as a sign and a seal of the covenant of grace made by God through Jesus Christ, and extended freely to all of us. In baptism, God claims us as beloved children and members of Christ's body, unites us to the family of God, washes us clean from sin, and calls us to a new life as followers of Jesus. Baptism is never a private celebration but is a public act of worship, celebrated by the whole community.

 

Children's Baptism

The sacrament of baptism for infants and children signifies God’s love and commits the parent(s) and congregation to support that child’s growth and instruction in the Christian faith. There is no minimum age for infant baptism. Parents seeking baptism for their child should contact Pastor Ben or Pastor Katie.

Adult Baptism

Baptism is a sign of your acceptance of Jesus Christ as your Savior. Your baptism from any Christian faith, whether as a child or as an adult, regardless of how the water is administered, is acceptable in the Presbyterian Church. If you have not been baptized and would like to discuss or arrange for baptism, contact Pastor Ben or Pastor Katie.
