Baptism

 

1. When your child is baptized at Family of Christ, he/she becomes a member of Family of Christ Lutheran Church. Perhaps you are bringing your son or daughter to be baptized at Family of Christ because you are already members of our congregation. If you are not, we would like to encourage you to become a part of our church together with your child. To help you make this connection with Family of Christ, we invite you to consider taking our five week membership class (Discovery Class). This class introduces you to the specific mission and ministries of Family of Christ. 

2. Our pastor would like to meet personally with you. Family of Christ cares about your family and wants to encourage your ongoing growth in the Christian faith. Please make a point to call the church office (763-434-7337) and make an appointment to speak with Pastor Keith.

3. Everyone is required to take a Baptism class before the actual Baptism.

4. The baptism class is offered at the church on the second Tuesday of odd numbered months from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Pre-signup is encouraged by calling the church office. Both parents of the child are required to attend. Childcare is provided for children 0 to 5 years old by calling the church office at least one week prior to class.

5. Scheduling your Baptism date must be done through the church office. Baptism dates are only set by the office staff. Check with the church office for available dates.

6. If it has been three years or more since the last time you took a Baptism class at Family of Christ Lutheran Church, you must speak to one of our pastors about the need to take the class again.

7. To better serve you on the day of the Baptism, we need to know how many chairs should be reserved for your family and friends. Please call the church office at least four days before the baptism so that we can accommodate your group in the service.

8. Please notify members of your Baptism party that photographs during the service should be done discretely from where they are sitting without flash. Additional pictures can be taken after the worship service.
