Baptisms & Weddings

Baptisms & Weddings

There is nothing we do as a church that is more joyful than the sacrament of baptism! Baptism is the public recognition that this person is God’s adopted child, and is an initiation into the community of the faithful. It carries with it the promise of new life lived in Christ and release from the bondage of sin. We believe baptism to be a gift from God. It is not something we earn or become ready for. We do ask that those desiring the sacrament of baptism meet with a pastor to consider what baptism is, the promises that parents and sponsors make in this sacrament, and become familiar with the service of baptism in this church. Because baptism is an initiation into the community of believers, baptisms at First Church is normally done at worship services, where the newly baptized can be welcomed into the congregation. If you have questions about baptism at First Church, please fill out the contact form below and someone from the Church Office will contact you personally. 



We believe that there is no better way to start a marriage than in a worship ceremony where your union will be blessed by the source of the love that you declare to one another. Anyone who desires that God be actively present in the marriage ceremony and in their life together and who is comfortable with a service that respects basic UCC teachings may be married at First Church. For detailed information on weddings at First Church, including policies, fees, and help in planning, please fill out the contact form below and the Church Office  will contact you personally.
