We offer three types of religious ceremonies at Church of the Good Shepherd, the Sacrament of Baptism for infants, children, and adults, Wedding Ceremonies for couples and same-sex couples, and Celebration of Life Memorial Services.
Sacrament of Baptism
Through the sacrament of baptism, a person is incorporated into the universal church, the body of Christ. The water, words, and actions of the sacrament are outward and visible signs of God’s grace.
In the United Church of Christ, people are baptized either as children or adults. Baptism with water and the Holy Spirit is the mark of a person’s acceptance into the care of Christ’s church, the sign. and seal of their participation in God’s forgiveness, and the beginning of their new growth into full Christian faith and life.
