Rituals of Faith
Our worship life includes opportunities to celebrate and acknowledge the important rituals of faith that happen in our lives, including baptism, Holy Communion, marriage ceremonies, confirmation, and funerals and memorial services. We celebrate the two sacraments of baptism and Holy Communion, as taught by Jesus. A sacrament is a visible act done by humans in which God is at work. It’s a visible sign of God’s grace and love for us through Jesus Christ. To inquiry about any of these special worship opportunities, please contact our Main Office (330-650-4048, email@example.com).
All who seek to follow Jesus Christ and the life of discipleship he teaches are invited to accept the sacrament of baptism. If you have been baptized previously, you need not be baptized again to be part of our congregation. If you seek baptism for yourself (adult or believer baptism) or for an infant or young child, we would be glad to be part of your faith journey and lead you in the baptism. Baptism of an infant or young child is an act of accepting the promises of God on behalf of your child. The sacrament of baptism welcomes all into the church family and is therefore celebrated during a Sunday morning worship service.
In the sacrament of Holy Communion, also called the Lord’s Supper or Eucharist (meaning “thanksgiving”), Christians hear, taste, touch and receive the grace of God revealed through Jesus Christ in a unique way. The communion meal recalls the table fellowship Jesus shared with his disciples, and in particular the Last Supper on the night before his death, as well as his appearances to the disciples during meals following his resurrection.
At First Congregational Church, we celebrate Holy Communion weekly at our 8:30 a.m. service, on the first Sunday of the month at our 10 and 11:25 a.m. services, and on Maundy Thursday. All who wish to know the presence of Christ and share in the community of God’s people are welcome to the Communion Table. Children are welcome to join in this holy meal at the discretion of their parents/guardians.
All 8th grade youth of our congregation are invited to confirm their baptismal vows and decision to join the church. Check out more details here
