Grace United Church
Congregational Involvement

At Baptism, promises are made by both the parents and the members of the congregation to do all we can to provide a Christian home for our children, and that all the members will support the parents.

When our children are baptized they are welcomed into the Christian Church.  They belong to the Church because they are part of a family within the 'family of faith'.

Since it is the sacrament of welcoming into the church family, Baptism normally occurs in the congregation where the child will live and grow.  However, there may be good reasons for holding the Baptism elsewhere.  When this happens, it is with the understanding that the people of Grace Church are acting on behalf of the people of your church family where you now live.
