Baptisms

The great occasion of Holy Baptism – when a child is born again (receives Christ through the faith of the parent(s) and godparents, and is made a full member of the Church) – is a time of celebration for the child’s immediate family and friends. At St. Martin’s, this sacrament of new birth is normally done at a private service in the Chapel on a Saturday or Sunday immediately following the 11:15 a.m. service. In addition, there are designated Sundays on which the baptism can be held during the Family Table service.

Baptisms are typically held privately or in small groups, and are preceded by baptismal instruction for the parents and godparents. If the candidate for baptism is an adult, preparation also is appropriate. Baptism instruction classes are scheduled throughout the year.

Flowers beautify the sacred spaces of our church, and are a gift to God and those who attend our worship services. The cost of altar flowers is funded through generous donations to the St. Martin’s Flower Fund and not through a line item in the church budget. A contribution to the Flower Fund is a meaningful way to honor a loved one. It is also tax deductible.

If you have scheduled a baptism and are interested in making a donation to the flower fund, please use the form below to make your payment online.  To pay by check, please refer to the forms included in your baptism paperwork.
