We celebrate the baptism of Autumn La’Shea Townsend . Baptism marks her acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the beginning of her new life in Christ, the gift of the Holy Spirit upon her, and her initiation into Christ’s Holy Church. Baptism is one of our two sacraments in The United Methodist Church, along with Communion. Baptism is a means of God’s grace, an outward sign of God’s inner work of grace — in which we put off the old, renouncing sin and the evil powers of the world, and pledging our loyalty to Christ.

For worshippers interested in renewing the promises they have made at their baptism, we invite you to participate today during the worship service in the Reaffirmation of the Baptismal Covenant and the Baptismal Remembrance . If you have not received the sacrament of Baptism and are interested in doing so, please talk with Pastor Dan to arrange a time.
