Baptisms, Weddings, & Funerals

We hope to walk with you in every aspect of life, whether it’s a baptism, wedding, or funeral. Please contact the Church Office and we will make arrangements with you.

Baptisms
Baptism is celebrated as part of our worship together. The Sacrament of baptism is shared with infants, children, youth, and adults that have not been baptized. It is a sign of God’s love for an individual, and the beginning of a lifelong journey with the community into closer relationship with Jesus Christ. Persons desiring baptism or parents wanting to bring their children for baptism should schedule a time to meet with the pastor. In most cases, we require that at least one parent be a member or regular participant in worship at Community UMC. Go HERE to learn more about Methodist beliefs on Baptism.

Weddings
Weddings are a chance to celebrate the love of two persons for each other, as a reflection of Christ’s love for us. The wedding vows build upon our baptismal covenant. The pastor is delighted to perform Christian wedding ceremonies for members and non-members, either at Community UMC or off-site. In most cases, pre-marital sessions are required for counseling and planning purposes. There are fees for the use of the church facility. Go HERE to learn more about Methodist beliefs on Marriage.

Funerals
Funerals are a chance both to remember and celebrate the deceased’s life, and to anticipate the promise of resurrection in Jesus Christ. The pastor will perform Christian funeral services for members and non-members, either at Community UMC or off-site. For services held at church, we can help host a reception or meal following the event.
