Baptisms and Dedications are part of the worship experience of Ward Church and are administered at our regular Sunday worship services 3 times per year. Baptism is offered to infant children of parents who are actively participating members of Ward Church. The baptism of infants witnesses to the truth that God’s love claims us even before we are able to respond in faith. Parents who prefer to have their children wait for baptism until after their child’s personal profession of faith in Christ may present their infants for dedication.

A Parent Class is required prior to scheduling your child’s baptism/dedication. At Ward Church, we baptize infants who have at least 1 parent who is an actively participating member of the church. The next class is happening on Sunday, April 24, 2022 at 9 a.m. in the Hub Meeting Room. This is a required class for parents who are having a child baptized or dedicated on Sunday, May 8, 2022.

Please contact melanie.mantey@ward.church or 248.374.5989  for further information or to register.

The fall infant baptism Sunday will take place on October 9, 2022.

A parent booklet is available to download as a PDF. This booklet is a guide to understanding the baptism of children and what we believe at Ward Church. Read about Ward Church’s perspectives on infant baptism.
