Baptisms & Naming Ceremonies

A Baptism Ceremony is not just for babies; children of any age can have a ceremony.  One of our officiants will be pleased to perform your Baptism Ceremony for your son or daughter. We have a goal of providng you with a memorable ceremony and special day.  As a non-denominational christian church, we do not represent any particular religion.  We conduct the ceremony you want, your way.
It is important to note that in these non-denominational christian cermonies, your child is not baptized into any particular religion, but the parents do receive a beautiful Baptism Certificate.  The nice thing about this Baptism Ceremony is that later in life should your child make a personal decision to unite with a faith community of the child's own choice, your child will be able to present themselves as a fully Baptized person.
You may wish to include your older children in the Baptism or Naming Ceremony as well as your new baby.  The Ceremony is the perfect opportunity to declare your promises to your child before family and friends.  It is also the perfect opportunity to involve relatives, such as grandparents, and maybe other adult friends.  It is nice to have supporting adults or God parents, allowing them to confirm their special relationship with your child and share their promises at the ceremony in front of you and the guests.

Memorials & Celebrations of Life

When a person who has passed away didn't follow one particular religion or faith, a non-denominational christian memorial service can prove to be the most appropriate way to honor that persons life.  Instead of focusing on religious texts during the ceremony, the family can choose to take a more humanistic approach.
Even if the person who passed did loosely follow a religion, it is becoming increasingly common for families to use a non-denominational christian service in order to honor their loved one and commemorate their life.
In a non-denominational christian service, the focus is less on traditional prayers and shifts more to the words and sentiments of people who loved the deceased.  This human, emotional touch is something that many people find appealing.  It is also possible to incorporate a few traditional prayers and hymns, while keeping the focus on the concrete ways in which that person touched lives.  Many people also find it special to have close friends or family members deliver eulogies during the ceremony.
If you don't feel comfortable asking those in attendance to participate in a prayer during the service, a moment of silence will be sufficient.  This allows everyone to reflect on what the deceased meant to them, without forcing a religious element into a non-denominational service.
If you find words from religious texts comforting but still would prefer to have a non-denominational christian service, you can incorporate religious texts from a variety of different faiths.  When it comes to religious references during a non-denominational christian service, there is no need to feel as if you have to reference God, Jesus, or any other element of traditional religion in order to honor the person who has passed.  You can simply make reference to finding peace in the hearts of loved ones.
If your loved one was not particularly religious, it is still possible to have a beautiful and meaningful ceremony, without a heavy religious presence.  Using eulogies from loved ones and inspirational readings, it is easy to honor your loved one's life during a non-denominational christian ceremony.
