Memorial Services

In times of grief and loss, the pastoral staff of University Christian Church stands ready to provide support and guidance. Our minister will help plan a meaningful service of remembrance to be held at the church, a funeral home, or other location of the family’s choosing.

 

Baptism

Baptism is one of the most sacred experiences of a Christian’s life. We believe that baptism serves as an important step in a person’s faith journey. It is a way of saying “yes” to God after God has already said “yes” to us. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) practices beleiver’s baptism by immersion, which means that we require that a person must be of an adequate age to choose to follow the teachings of Jesus in his or her life.  However, we respect and acknowledge all forms of baptism as valid expressions of faith.

 

Child Dedications

It’s a very special time when a baby is born! We do not practice infant baptism, because we believe that children (and all people, for that matter) are inherently loved by God. In our tradition, we welcome children into the faith community by observing a child dedication. This dedication reminds both the parents and the congregation that we are involved in a holy work: raising children that are loving, compassionate, and committed to peace-building. A celebration certificate is provided to the family.

 

Forever Family Recognitions

There are many families that are created through the miracle of adoption. When a Forever Family is created, we observe a special moment of dedication, planned with the newly created family. A certificate suitable for framing is provided at the conclusion of this time of blessing held in one of our worship services.
