BaptismBaptism is the sign and seal of God's grace and covenant in Christ. As The Book of Order of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) explains, baptism signifies the faithfulness of God, the washing away of sin, rebirth, putting on the fresh garment of Christ, and adoption into the covenant family of the church.
CommunionCommunion is celebrated once a month at First Presbyterian Church, generally the first Sunday of the month. This tradition is a celebration and remembrance that challenges us to do two things: one, remember that hope has been given to humanity in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ; and two, to remember that the body of Christ is larger than our own personal relationships but joins all of God's children together. Everyone-children and adults-is welcome to the table, through the waters of baptism, no matter where one is on the walk and search for God.
