BAPTISM & DEDICATION
Upper Room baptizes and dedicates infants and we offer baptism or reaffirmation of baptism for elementary aged children through adults.
Click here to see a document that outlines Upper Room’s beliefs about baptism. We hope that you will find it helpful, but our orientation will be your opportunity to learn more and ask any questions you might have.
infant baptism or dedication
Infant baptisms/dedications are held 3 times throughout the year. Upper Room believes that baptism/dedications are most fully experienced in the context of the community in which the family is connected into so that we can mutually support one another in our journeys.
We ask that families attend a one-hour infant baptism and dedication class leading up to the event during which we share our beliefs about baptism and dedication and take some time to consider what this marking moment means for you and your family.
If you would like to participate in an infant baptism/dedication experience please fill out our online form.
If you have any questions that you would like answered before making a decision to go forward with a baptism or dedication please email Hannah Sinnwell.
baptism & re-affirmation (elementary-adult)
Upper Room celebrates a baptism and reaffirmation experience during our Gatherings for community members once a year during the summer. People who desire to be baptized or reaffirm their baptism vows are required to attend a baptism and reaffirmation seminar as part of their decision-making process. We also ask people to meet with a pastor and to share their baptism or reaffirmation story.
If you would like to participate in an upcoming baptism or reaffirmation experience please fill out our online form and a pastor will contact you with more specific information.
If you have any questions that you would like answered before making a decision to go forward with a baptism or reaffirmation please please email the Lead Team.
