Special Religious Events
WEDDING, BAPTISM, NEW AND TRANSFER MEMBERSHIP
Weddings are very special events in our lives and much preparation goes into the planning.
To assist you in your planning we have several resources available. Please feel free to download and browse our wedding policy book. It has much valuable information that will help you plan your special service.
If you decide you would like to be married at Scandia Lutheran please call the church office to see if your preferred date is available. Weddings are booked on a first come, first served basis.
The Wedding Ceremony Form will need to be filled out and sent to the church. The Scandia Wedding Policy is important information you will need to help assist you in your planning and will be shared with the officiating pastor and wedding coordinator.
We are pleased and honored that you have chosen to have your child baptized at Scandia Lutheran. Having your child baptized here not only makes them a member of the Body of Christ, but a member of Scandia.
As parents you make promises to your child at his/her Baptism. As a faith community, Scandia Lutheran also makes promises. One of them is to help you teach your child about our Christian faith. As soon as you know when you would like your child to be baptized, please call the church office to schedule the date or complete the online Baptism Form.
Holy Baptism is received by faith alone. By God's gift and call, all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus are daily put to death so that we might be raised daily to newness of life. God, whose grace is for all, is the one who acts in Baptism. Therefore candidates for Baptism are of all ages. Some are adults and older children who have heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ, declare their faith, and desire Holy Baptism. Others are the young or infant children of active members of the congregation or those children for whom members of the congregation assume sponsorship. In Holy Baptism, God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit delivers us from the forces of evil, puts our sinful self to death, gives us new birth, adopts us as children, and makes us member of the body of Christ, the Church.
Welcome! We are pleased that you are interested in joining our church family. We hope that you will continue to grow in your faith and deepen your understanding of God's love for you as you work alongside us for the good of the kingdom. If you would like to become part of our faith community, we invite you to fill out our Membership Form and we will contact you regarding upcoming classes and New Member Sunday's.
