Baptisms at Westminster

The sacrament of baptism is offered during one or both worship services approximately bi-monthly. In our tradition the congregation as a whole plays an important part in the commitment to support and nurture those baptized, so we generally baptize the children of those who are already members  of Westminster. Youth and adults who have not previously received this sacrament are baptized at the time that they join the church.

Questions about the sacrament or the process may be directed to a pastor or to Nancy Greidanus, minister for christian education and family life. Information about specific dates and request forms are obtained from Becky Stein-Wells in the church office.

Parents of infants and young children meet with a member of the pastoral staff and Nancy Greidanus prior to the baptism to explore both the meaning of this sacrament and the logistics of the service.
