Baptisms

The sacrament of baptism is the rite of incorporation into the community and care of the Church. It symbolizes the cleansing forgiveness that is ours through Jesus and reminds us that God’s love is a gift, freely offered to all who will receive it.

In the United Church of Christ, people are baptized either as children or as adults. At Plymouth, our ministers baptize by sprinkling water from the baptismal font. When we baptize infants and small children, we emphasize that God’s love comes before any conscious response on our part. The congregation offers its understanding and support to the child and promises to join the parents in showing God’s love for all. When adults are baptized, we emphasize that faith also requires a response of commitment on the part of those who choose to be followers of Christ.

Baptisms usually occur monthly and can be arranged by calling the church office, 515.255.3149, or contacting Paula Wilkerson at pwilkerson@plymouthchurch.com.
