Baptism & Communion at PMLC

Worship is the primary work of the church.  Everything we do and say in worship points to our great God who has rescued us from sin, death, and evil in the cross of Jesus and has delivered us to new life and hope with Jesus’ resurrection. 

God delivers grace through our worship.  This grace is God’s unconditional love for all of us that frees us to be the people God wants us to be.  This grace shows up in our sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion.  It comes to us as we listen to God’s Word and hear it interpreted for our day. In worship, we experience the means of grace. 

Baptism is more than “eternal salvation.”  It is the way we become members of the Body of Christ here on earth.  It gives us a new identity – beloved children of God – so that we may live in the power of God’s grace in the here and now.  We celebrate adult, teen, child, and infant baptisms throughout the year. 

In infant baptism, parents make several promises to pass on the faith to their children, including bringing them to the services of God’s house.  It’s important to invest in your faith by belonging to a local body of believers, so we require parents to be members of our church before their children are baptized.   

Communion at PMLC is the other way we experience God’s grace through worship.  In this Last and Holy meal of Jesus, we remember his life and receive his forgiveness.  We taste our future where God promises to remove death and establish us in the kingdom of heaven.  We open our empty hands and thank God for providing us grace and new life through simple elements of bread and wine. 

We are invited to the table at Jesus’ invitation, and because of that, our communion table is open to all.  That means that you don’t have to be a member of PMLC to commune, or even a Lutheran.  We welcome children of all ages to this favorite meal of the church because of Jesus’ invitation.  He enjoyed eating with sinners and the outcast.  He told his disciples to bring the ‘littlest ones’ to him.  So we come, not because we are worthy and have it all figure out but because God wants us to enjoy grace. 

To assist families with preparing their children for communion, we have created a holy communion packet for your family as you prepare to engage this great meal of God's.  We believe that it’s never too soon to be a part of God’s table ‘party.’
