Baptism

Baptism

As Lutheran Christians, we believe that baptism of any person of any age is an important part of bringing faith into lives.  We baptize children because we believe that they, as much as anyone else, need what baptism offers; forgiveness of sins and new life in Christ.  Sin is a condition all people are born with, including children.  So, we baptize infants, children, youth & adults.  Baptism is a wonderful gift of God!

If you would like to have your child/ren baptized, we ask that you take a Pre-Baptism class.  Taking the class prior to the birth of your child is advised, but you can take it at any point before baptism.  This 45 minute class is held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 6 p.m. in the church conference room.  A baptism date is set at the end of the class session.  

For more information, or to schedule a baptism, please contact Robin in the church office at robingrenfell@trinitymerrill.com or at 715-536-5482.
