Nativity and the United Church of Christ recognizes two sacraments:
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion.
Baptism is a symbol of belonging to God and to the Christian community. We baptize children (and adults) during worship when the community is present because baptism includes the community’s promise of ‘love, support and care’ for the baptized. Parents interested in having children baptized should contact the minister.
The celebration of Holy Communion comes from Jesus’ last supper with his disciples. Therefore, we believe that the invitation to come to communion comes from Jesus and all are welcome at the table. Communion is celebrated the 1st Sunday of the month at the Traditional Service (10:30 a.m.) and the 3rd Sunday at the Contemporary Service (9:00 a.m.).
