Baptisms at Westwood
We would love to welcome you and/or your child into God’s family through the sacrament of baptism! Baptism is a joyful time for the church to welcome someone into our midst, for parents and sponsors to make a commitment to raise a child in the faith and as part of our faith community, and for God to claim and call this precious child into a life of discipleship.
Until we are worshipping back in the Sanctuary regularly and you are comfortable having the baptism in the midst of a worship service, you have 2 options:
A pastor can gather with your family at a time convenient to all, and we will do the baptism together in the Sanctuary with just this small group, using our Covid protocols. We will film it and it will then be included in an upcoming online worship.
If you are comfortable, we can do the baptism as part of the worship, either outdoors in the summer or indoors as we begin to do in-person services again. We normally do baptisms on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month.
Please fill out the Baptism Request form (link below) indicating your date preference, and we will get back to you to make final arrangements.
If you have questions concerning baptism and would like to talk to a pastor, please call the church office to set a time with one of the pastors.
Class is mandatory for 1st time Westwood baptisms.
Classes are held monthly. During Covid, the class will be done privately with a pastor over Zoom
Welcome to the Family!
