Baptisms and Dedications

At Trinity Church we offer opportunities for baptism. In our United Church of Christ tradition, we baptize with a sprinkle of water. In our American Baptist Churches tradition, we baptize believers (those old enough to choose Christ for themselves) by full immersion in water.   The American Baptist tradition offers a Dedication service for infants.

In either case, the ceremony involves a covenant between the congregation and the parents to work together to nurture the child as a child of God in our church community until he or she is old enough to be confirmed (if baptized) or choose believer’s baptism for himself or herself (if dedicated).  There is an expectation that the family will participate in our church family, and be members of the church.
