Holy Baptism is one of the two sacraments in the Lutheran tradition and exists primarily to proclaim the grace of God that we know in Jesus Christ. It is in the Word and water of baptism that we are declared children of God and members
of the community of God’s people. Baptism initiates a lifelong journey of faith in Jesus that will bloom and grow into maturity.
Prairie Lutheran Church is a community committed to nurturing the faith of the baptized through opportunities for worship, learning, service, giving, and prayer. Prairie strives to encourage and equip parents as they raise their children in an active and confident faith in Jesus Christ.
BAPTISM PREPARATION CLASSES
At Prairie Lutheran, we offer Baptism Preparation Classes to parents of infants and children, and also adults, who have not yet been baptized in the Christian faith. These classes are family friendly, and work to provide parents with:
· Instruction and information about the sacrament of holy baptism,
· Fellowship and connections between families in our faith community, and
· Partnerships between parents and the church to help encourage and equip them and their family’s faith journey.
The classes consist of two 45 minute sessions held on Wednesday evenings at Prairie Lutheran from 5:15-6:00 pm in the Fireside Room. Parents should plan on attending both sessions, and you need only to attend them once. Below are the dates for this year's Baptism Prep Classes.
