In the United Church Baptism is one of the two sacraments we practice. Baptism is a welcoming into the church. We believe the gift of God’s love doesn’t depend on our ability to understand it, so we baptize people as infants right up through adulthood. Baptism is not a requirement for God’s love, it recognizes God’s love surrounds us from the moment we are born and continues throughout the course of our lives. If you would like more information on baptism please contact our minister directly and he will be happy to discuss baptism with you.
Love is something to be celebrated. Our Christian faith is based in the love of God revealed in the person of Jesus Christ. It can feel overwhelming when thinking about all the details of a wedding. Our minister would be happy to discuss with you designing a service that reflects the wishes of you and your partner. Do you want the service in our church building or do you want it outdoors? All these details and costs can be discussed with our minister. Please contact our minister directly for more information on weddings.
First United Church offers Christian funeral and burial services. This service whether in the church or at the graveside may involve the offering of prayers, the singing of hymns, a eulogy to remember the deceased, a sermon, and readings from the Bible. Our minister will also work with you to design the service to reflect the life of your loved one and the wishes of your family. For more information on Funeral and Burial services please contact our minister.
