Baptisms are scheduled during Sunday morning worship in consultation with our ministers Rev. Julie and Rev. Jennifer. The United Church offers baptism to people of all ages. Baptism is a symbolic and public act to acknowledge the unconditional love of God in which we have been created, to signify a desire to follow the way of Jesus and to belong to a community of faith. Baptism is the single rite of initiation into the Christian community, although people do not have to be baptized to participate in our community. Water is used to represent the new life received when one engages in an intentional spiritual journey. As part of a baptism service, the parents of children being baptized or adults coming to be baptized, are asked to commit to a life of Christian faith. Our congregation pledges support for those being baptized. To prepare for these commitments, those seeking baptism at St. Andrew’s-Ioco United Church (for their children or for themselves as adults), are requested to participate in baptism preparation. Please contact our ministers Rev. Julie and Rev. Jennifer for further information regarding preparation for baptism.
