The Rite of Baptism for Children includes these words, "The Christian community welcomes you with great joy." And it is also with great joy that our church helps parents prepare for the baptism of their baby.
In bringing forward your child for baptism, you seek to make a permanent connection between your child and Christ with the Christian community. No matter how close or distant your own relationship with God, the new life of your child has stirred a desire in you to seek baptism for him or her. In this sacrament, the Christian community promises to walk beside you in nurturing the faith of your child.
