Baptism

We at Squamish United Church experience baptism as a celebration of life within the Christian community.  Baptism is an important decision for you and/or your child. We would be pleased to be with you in this celebration and the preparation that precedes it.  We invite you to meet with our minister to discuss what baptism means and why you are considering it for you and/or your family.

Baptism is above all a sacrament of GRACE.  There are no “requirements;” your child is always welcome, and will always be received by God, no matter what.  On the other hand, we do have an expectation that you are entering into this sacrament with seriousness and sincerity.  We hope that you will become part of our congregation, and we will do our best to welcome you and your child. 

The sacrament will be prepared according to your needs, however it is important for you to know Baptism is a welcome into the body of Christ and because of that it is preferred the sacrament be carried out in a public worship service.  Typically you will meet with the minister 2-3 times to prepare for this exciting celebration.  We look forward to journeying with you in this step of faith.  If you would like to talk to a minister about having your child baptized, please give us a call.  604-892-5727.
