Baptism is one of the two sacraments of the Presbyterian Church (USA). The other sacrament is the Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion.

Baptism initiates us into the universal Christian Church, assures us that our sins are forgiven, and is the first step on a lifelong journey of faith. Baptism is celebrated in a service of public worship.

Parents who wish to have their child baptized meet with a pastor to discuss the meaning of baptism.

Memorial Services

Call the church office to speak to a pastor or the administrative assistant for guidance.

  • Intentions at the Time of Death

    Planning funeral arrangements for yourself is not an easy task but it is very helpful to your survivors, your pastors and those who will carry out your intentions at the time of your death. It also can bring peace of mind to you as you make clear your intentions regarding whether you desire an earth burial or cremation; where you wish memorial contributions to be directed and your choice of a funeral home. The church keeps a confidential file of such intentions to assist the families of its members at the time of death. A form may be obtained through the church office and will be kept on file at the church.

  • Memorial Garden

    The church has a memorial garden for the interment of cremains. Information and applications may be obtained through the church office.
