Baptism is the celebration of new life, a rite of initiation where those baptized are received into the Christian community. Baptism is an occasion for joy for the families and for the whole community. The sacrament of Baptism is celebrated during Sunday morning worship services throughout the year.

If you would like to arrange for a baptism, please call the church office at 630-325-1280. Please download the Baptismal Information form, complete, and return to the church office.
