OUR SERVICES

Service

Service & Coffee Hour
Sundays at 10am.

Coffee Hour and Conversation in the Parish Hall immediately follows our worship service. An extension of the warm and loving hospitality one finds during the service, our Coffee Hour is a favorite time to gather and catch up with each other and a wonderful opportunity to meet and greet and welcome newcomers.

Baptism

Baptism

Adults seeking baptism and parents wishing to have their children baptized must attend a one session class on Baptism. The class focuses on the theology, history and liturgy of the sacrament. Classes are held within two weeks of each scheduled baptism, as arranged with the Rector.

Communion Class

Communion Class

Christ comes to us bringing good news of God’s grace. God summons us to be in communion with Him through hearing and responding to Holy Scripture and by sharing in the sacred mystery of the consecrated bread and wine.

Confirmation

Confirmation Class

We make an adult profession of faith by publicly taking on our Baptismal Covenant and by sharing in the Pascal mystery of the consecrated bread and wine. Confirmation classes are usually held as part of our Adult Lenten Bible Study.

APPLICATION FOR HOLY BAPTISM

APPLICATION FOR HOLY BAPTISM

Baptisms are a time of great joy and hope, and we would love to journey into to the waters of baptism with you.

The Episcopal Church recognizes Baptism as a sacrament that initiates new members into the Church Universal. With the exception of baptisms done in emergency, baptisms are part of our Sunday service. Dates especially appropriate to baptism are the Feast of the Baptism of our Lord, the Great Vigil of Easter and during the season of Easter, Pentecost, All Saints Day, and any time the Bishop is present.

Because baptism is a lifelong commitment, we require that baptismal candidates and/or their Parents and Godparents attend baptismal preparation. At St. Christopher’s we offer a class called Wade in the Water before baptismal Feast Days to prepare for the sacrament.

If you would like to learn more about baptism for yourself or someone in your household, please fill out the form.
