Preparation for Holy Baptism: If you, or someone in your family, has never been baptized, please contact one of our clergy. Sign up is required two weeks prior to the Sunday of the Baptism. There is a baptism preparation class which is required for adult candidates and one or both parents and godparents. This class is taught by the Rev. Robby Vickery or the Rev. Janne Alro Osborneand is usually held on the Monday before the baptism, 7-9 PM.
