Baptism for Adults and Older Children
Baptism is the way someone “joins” the Christian faith, so if you want or need to be baptized, that will be part of your joining our church. If you are already baptized, you do not need to be baptized again when you join our church, you may choose to verbally reaffirm your faith. If you belong to another church, we can transfer your membership to Glen Mar. Please visit our “Join” page for more information.
Baptism is an important ritual in the Christian faith, symbolic of being reborn in Christ. Anyone who has not been baptized is encouraged to take this important step, regardless of age.
Baptism for Children
Many parents choose to have their children baptized as babies or young children – symbolic of their dedication to raise their children to walk with Jesus until they are old enough to confirm their faith.
Baptism class is for parents who wish to have their child baptized as well as adults who wish to be baptized. Class is held on the second Sunday of each month and baptisms occur on the third Sunday, (unless the 2nd or 3rd Sunday falls on Easter or Mother’s Day). You need only to attend once.
A pastor will meet with you personally to guide you through the process and schedule a date for baptism before the congregation. For more information or to sign up for baptism classes, contact Melaina Trice, Pastor of Worship and Communications.
