At Mill Creek, we celebrate two sacraments: baptism and Communion. Sacraments are signs of God’s grace through which God tells us he loves us and calls us to a deeper faith. Sacraments are not first of all about us; they are about God and what God does for us.
Baptism symbolizes and enacts God’s incorporation of people into his family. It is a love letter written in water telling us what Christ has done for us. We baptize both adults and children, believing that baptism is first about God’s love, not our response. But baptism also calls us to a response. Our response is to love God back.
In the case of children, their loving God back may take years to fully develop. When it does, we ask them to profess their faith before the church. Baptized adults already love God, but even for them, their love for God and the ways of God should continue to grow stronger as they learn to live out their baptism.
In Communion, also known as the Lord’s Supper, the bread and the cup spiritually convey to us the body and blood of Jesus. One of our confessions says that as we eat and drink the Lord’s Supper, we take in the life of Jesus. By celebrating the Lord’s Supper together, we become the body of Christ.
We celebrate the Lord’s Supper once a month, usually on the third Sunday. Baptisms are arranged through the pastor.
We invite you to join us for worship at 10 a.m. each Sunday!
