Daily from 11:30am to 1:00pm and 8:30pm to 10:00pm

SACRAMENTS
Our Confession of Faith states: “We believe the sacraments, ordained by Christ, are symbols and pledges of the Christian’s profession and of God’s love toward us. They are means of grace by which God works invisibly in us, quickening [bringing to life], strengthening and confirming our faith in him. Two Sacraments are ordained by Christ our Lord, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper” The term is taken from the Latin sacramentum, which was a Roman soldier’s pledge of allegiance. A sacrament is God’s pledge of allegiance [love and faithfulness] to us, and our answering pledge of allegiance to God.

Baptism
Baptism is a sacrament. In a sacrament, God uses common elements – in this case, water – as means or vehicles of divine grace. Baptism is administered by the church as the Body of Christ. It is the act of God through the grace of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit. It is a sign or regeneration or new birth. We baptize people of all ages, and when an infant baptism or a child’s baptism takes place we understand that the parent’s are making this commitment on behalf of their child until the child can confirm what was done on their behalf during baptism.

Communion, The Lord’s Supper
We celebrate the sacrament of communion once a month, generally on the first Sunday of the month. It is the Lord’s Supper, not ours, and it is Christ who invites you. As our ritual puts it: “Christ our Lord invites to his table all who love him, who earnestly repent of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another. ” We do not refuse any who present themselves desiring to receive. Whether you should receive Communion with us is between you and God. The Lord’s Supper is not only a sign of the love that Christians ought to have among themselves one to another, but rather is a sacrament of our redemption by Christ’s death; insomuch that, to such as rightly, worthily, and with faith receive the same, the bread which is partaking of the body of Christ, and likewise the cup of blessing is a partaking of the blood of Christ.
