Baptisms & Weddings

Not Booking Baptisms at this Time

At MPPC, we have been closely monitoring government guidelines regarding small and large public and private gatherings as we attempt to do our part to “flatten the curve” of the coronavirus. Due to the recent directives shared by our local and national government, we are not going to be booking baptisms at this time given the unpredictability regarding community gatherings in the near future. We would hate to have to cancel or reschedule this important day. Thank you for your understanding and we cannot wait to share in the joy of dedicating your child to Christ through baptism when it is safe.

BAPTISMS

As Presbyterians, we view baptism as a celebration of God’s grace and abiding care. Through baptism we are engrafted onto the living vine of Christ (John 15) and become members of God’s family. In our tradition, baptism takes place in the gathered community of faith as a part of worship, giving all members the opportunity to commit their support to nurturing the one being baptized in the faith, teaching them the gospel of Jesus Christ and promising support to the parents of children being presented for the sacrament. The Presbyterian Church (USA) affirms and practices both infant and adult baptism, and we accept into membership any person who has been previously baptized in a Christian Church, without further baptizing.

For more information or to schedule a baptism, contact Trish Snead, Pastor’s Executive Assistant (843-884-4612).
