All Children are welcomed for baptism at PVUC. Membership in PVUC is not required, though we do welcome it !
PREPARATION: We provide written material on the baptism service; an information evening is held on the Wednesday prior to the baptism; we encourage attendance at several Sunday services to become familiar with PVUC.
GODPARENTS are not required but they are welcome to participate in the baptism service.
FEES: There is no fee for baptisms. During the worship service a voluntary collection is received.
PICTURES: We ask that pictures be taken after the service, not during it. PVUC makes a video DVD of the baptism service. Ask the Minister for more information.
HOME BAPTISM: Our expectation is that baptisms will be held at church during a Sunday morning service. In very special circumstances, (e.g. health) a baptism can be held at a hospital or home.
DATES: We usually have baptisms on the third Sunday of the month. Check with our Office.
DAY OF THE BAPTISM: After the baptism portion of the service, young siblings and children of extended families are welcome to attend any of our Sunday School classes or to stay with their families throughout the worship service. Our Nursery is also available for infants. Parents are welcome to accompany their children to either.
