Whether you’re one day old or 100 years old, everyone is invited. Regardless of age, God is there with open arms.
We teach at baptism that a person:
We baptize by sprinkling water and sharing the words of the Trinity. The pastor makes the sign of the cross on the forehead with anointing oil to invite the presence of the Holy Spirit.
At Southwood, we ask parents wishing to have children baptized to attend a Baptism Class to reflect on the meaning of baptism. We’ll share resources available at Southwood and you’ll meet other parents who are having their child baptized. Classes are offered bi-monthly. If you have attended Southwood’s baptismal class with an older child, participation is optional.
