Baptism is a significant public part of our faith journey as we come from the baptismal waters to live a new life as children of God.
As Lutherans, we recognize baptism at all ages and grow our faith through the baptismal liturgy practices to: '… live among God’s faithful people; hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s Supper; proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed; serve all people following the example of Jesus; and strive for justice and peace in all the earth.'
Baptisms are celebrated on the 1st & 3rd Sundays.
Marriage is a gift of God, through which couples to grow in faith and love for God and one another.
Studies show that happy married couples are likely to remain partners for life if they share a faith in God and a spiritual commitment.
At Rejoice, we are honored to help couples begin their life together with the blessing of God and care of our faith community.
We assist couples to prepare not just for their wedding ceremony, but their whole lives through premarital counseling with the Pastor.
When someone dies, loved ones need space to grieve, to remember the deceased, and to give thanks to God for their loved one’s life.
A church service can be an important part of that process and, whenever possible, it is beneficial for a person to plan and make their wishes known.
'Although a Christian funeral honestly confronts the harsh reality of life’s ending, it witnesses to our hope in a new life beginning, both for the deceased and for those who grieve.'
