Baptisms & Weddings
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.
We welcome everyone, and we are excited to help you take the next step in your commitment to one another and wish to have God sanctify your marriage. The officers, staff and congregation of Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church are delighted that you are considering the use of the church and its staff for your wedding service. Our wedding policy booklet found below should answer many of your questions about getting married at MPPC.
