Sacraments

Sacraments are signs of the real presence and power of Christ in the Church, symbols of God’s action. Through the sacraments, God seals believers in redemption, renews their identity as the people of God and marks them for service.

Baptism

Baptism is a sacred event in the life of a family and a child. When an infant or child is baptized, the entire congregation commits itself to nurture the child in faith, while the parents or guardians of the child declare their promise to be an active part of the church community.

SacramentsThe Sacrament of Baptism is conducted as part of the Sunday morning worship service. The only prerequisite for infant baptism is that one parent be an active member of the congregation.

Communion

The Lord’s Supper is the sign and seal of eating and drinking in communion with the crucified and risen Lord. In his last meal before his death, Jesus took and shared with his disciples the bread and wine, speaking of them as his body and blood, signs of the new covenant. He commended breaking bread and sharing a cup to remember and proclaim his death.

At Westminster Presbyterian Church, we practice open communion and celebrate the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper at our 10 a.m. worship service on the first Sunday of each month and on special days of the Christian calendar.
