Sharing the Joy of Christ
The Baptismal Covenant is God's word to us, proclaiming our adoption by grace, and our word to God promising our response of faith and love. Those within the covenant constitute the community we call the church; therefore, the services of the Baptismal Covenant are conducted during the public worship of the congregation where the person's membership is to be held, except in very unusual circumstances.
Riverchase UMC welcomes your inquiry about the Sacrament of Baptism and we look forward to assisting your family with planning this special day. It is our desire to make all baptisms a most memorable occasion.
Persons of all ages can be baptized at Riverchase UMC. The United Methodist Church recognizes baptisms from other faiths and churches and therefore does not “re-baptize”.
Baptisms are scheduled in the church office by contacting:
Baptisms are not held on the first Sunday of the month. The following information is needed to schedule: requested date, full name, birth date, parent’s full name (if baptism is for a child), and contact phone number. No flash photography is allowed during the worship service.
We welcome your inquiry into Baptism at Riverchase UMC!
