Holy Milestones

In the Evangelical Covenant Church, we practice both historic modes of Christian baptism: believer baptism and infant baptism. Each family usually chooses how they will participate in the sacrament based on their own faith background and theological convictions. Families are invited to pray and discern with a pastor to determine which mode of baptism they will emphasize in their household.

First Sunday of every month

We practice open communion and believe any follower of Jesus is welcome to the table of our Lord. Children who have made a declaration of faith in Jesus are invited to participate, though we encourage parents and guardians to decide when their children are ready. Children who will not receive the bread and cup are invited to cross their arms over their chests to receive a blessing.  

The cup is grape juice. Communion wafers ingredients: rice, maze, potato starch, olive oil, and water. When bread is used for communion, the bread is peanut/treenut/egg/dairy free. A gluten free station will be available.
