The Discipleship Team believes the stories of faith need to be shared with children from birth and continued through childhood, as well as youth and adults.  The first three years of a child’s life are an important time for this formation. However we know that God shows up in the lives of people regardless of their age. Grace welcomes families who are looking to make promises to their babies to raise them in the faith of Christ, as well as anyone who is looking to feel the promise of God’s belonging for their lives as a disciple of Jesus.

On Sundays when baptisms occur we lift up those who are coming for this God given gift in prayer and welcome them into the family of Christ.  We promise as a congregation to support the newly baptized and their families and offer many ways to accompany the life of faith.

If you are interested in speaking with a pastor about baptism please contact the office at or (815) 633-8075 to make an appointment.
