Baptism and Holy Communion are the two sacraments of the United Methodist Church. Sacraments are practices that connect us to the mystery of God's love and grace.
Baptism is our welcome into the family of Christ and celebrate the grace of God freely offered to us before we were even aware of it. Baptism may occur at any age and uses water as symbolic of God's love, necessary for all of life.
Holy Communion is the symbolic meal of bread (ours is gluten-free and hand baked) and drink (grape juice) shared by the family of Christ to nourish and sustain us as followers of Christ. Our practice is what is known as "open" communion, where people of all ages and church affiliations are welcome. It is done once a month as a celebration of our life together as the living body of Christ in and for our world.
