At a festal celebration of All Saints’ Day on Sunday, November 3rd, join us as we welcome new members to the church through the sacrament of baptism. We believe, at St. John’s, that baptism is first and foremost not about us, but about what God is doing through the Spirit and about what God is up to in the life and death and resurrection of Jesus. In this way, Baptism is less about a rite of passage, or even about one individual, but more about locating our individual lives in the wider life and story of God and God’s grace.
Have you been thinking you might like to be baptized or have your child baptized? If so, please schedule a time to meet with a member of the clergy to have a conversation about baptism, Christian faith and commitment, and what it means to be incorporated into the Body of Christ for you and for this community. If November 3 is too soon, our next Baptism Sunday is January 12, 2014.
To learn more and schedule a time to meet with clergy before Baptism Sunday, please contact The Reverend Jered Weber-Johnson, 651-228-1172 x11.
