Baptisms

The sacrament of Holy Baptism is the means by which God adopts us into his family, the Church. Lutherans practice infant baptism, but children, youth, and adults are also welcomed into the Church through baptism. Those desiring baptism, for themselves or their child, should contact the Pastor. Baptisms may be performed on any Sunday at either service. Private baptisms are not permitted, except in emergency situations.

Weddings

Our beautiful sanctuary is available to members and their immediate family members for Christian marriage services. The Fellowship Hall is available for receptions and rehearsal dinners. Couples desiring to be married in the church should contact the Pastor as soon as a date is set and before making other arrangements. Pre-marital counseling with the pastor is required as part of the preparation for the wedding. A brochure detailing our wedding guidelines is available in the church office.

House Blessings

It is appropriate to ask God’s blessing on a new home, to invite God to be a part of our lives right where we live. The residents and their guests move from room to room, reading scripture and praying together. Contact the pastor to schedule a house blessing.

Funerals

The death of a Christian is an occasion for mourning our loss, giving thanks to God for their life, and celebrating the hope of resurrection. It is most fitting for the funeral or memorial service to be held in the church, although another location may be appropriate. Burial or interment may follow or precede the service. The Cremains Garden is available for the interment of cremated ashes. The family plans the service in consultation with the pastor.

Pastoral Care and Counseling

Members seeking a counseling session with the pastor, or a conference with another staff member, should make an appointment directly with that person. Please notify the church office when you or a member of your family is entering the hospital, or any other time when pastoral care is needed.
