Connection Dessert – May 2019

No matter who you are or where you are in life, you have a next step to take – and not everyone has the same next step! If you’re new to Ward or have been visiting for a little while, we suggest starting at the Connection Dessert!

Infant Baptism & Dedication

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.
