Welcoming any and all persons into new life in Christ is one of the great privileges of any Christian community. Baptism is a sacrament wherein we recognize through the outward sign of water the inward grace of God joining us with the ministry of Christ's life, death, and resurrection. As such, it is understood as full initiation into membership in the body of Christ and is best done in the presence of the full congregation.
St. Paul's members are welcome to register children and grandchildren for an upcoming baptism. After selecting a date, parents and sponsors (Godparents) are expected to participate in a preparatory class typically led by St. Paul's clergy on the Saturday preceding baptism. Adults seeking to be baptized are encouraged to contact one of St. Paul's clergy.
