Baptism

BAPTISMS
The sacrament of baptism is an expression of God’s love and grace. Baptisms at LUMC are administered annually on Mother’s and Father’s Day. The sacrament of baptism is also administered throughout the year as scheduled.

Those interested in receiving baptism should contact the church office and speak to a pastor. We also ask that you fill out a Baptism Form. Children and adults who are baptized at our church will receive a certificate, a small baptismal cross, and a candle.

To learn more about the United Methodist Church’s understanding of baptism we invite you to explore the following links:
