Baptism

“Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body, the Church” (Book of Common Prayer, p. 298)

Baptism is a joyous celebration in which God adopts us as God’s own children and makes us members of the Church and inheritors of God’s kingdom. If you haven’t already been baptized, we offer this sacrament for infants and adults alike. To prepare for such a special event, we provide introductory sessions prior to the baptism date. Below are the scheduled Baptism dates for 2016-2017 to aid you in your planning and in your discernment. If you have any questions about this sacrament or how God might be calling you or someone you love to receive it, please contact Pastor Imogen at irhodenhiser@christchurchcranbrook.org or or 248.644.5210, ext. 16.
