Baptisms, Weddings and Memorials
At Grace we live to celebrate life through baptism; and love through marriage; and even to mark the passage of life to life as we remember “those we love but see no longer.” We hope that those wanting to celebrate with us will find this information helpful
The sacrament of Baptism is a regular part of our Sunday morning experience, and reminds us, in word and action, that we are all God’s children—and as such we long to be part of a family of faith. Baptism is a commitment to that family and that faith. For babies and very young children, Baptism is a family celebration and at Grace we adore celebrating with each child and his or her family. For older children, baptism becomes a conscious step into a bigger family, and a bigger world. And for adults, the decision to be baptized is often the outward and visible sign of something new that has been growing and maturing within. But in all cases, Baptism at Grace is a community experience with deep roots.
If you are interested in scheduling a baptism, please contact Wren Blessing, [email protected] or 206-842-9997.
Marriage, too, is a regular part of our life together—and we believe that Grace can help make this commitment a strong and deep one. If you have made this tender decision to commit to each other, please contact us right away so that we can let you know how to take the steps of working with our Rector to plan your ceremony. We want to help young couples find the right words and spirit to join their lives; we want to help couples choosing to re-marry find a good way to begin again; and we want to help couples seeking to make commitment ceremonies to honor and life-long relationship. Because it does take time to plan, we strongly suggest you contact us right away.
Celebrating a life lived is part of the Christian tradition, and very much a part of our life at Grace. We know that when someone we love dies we need support, insight and wisdom. We can help you plan a service that will reflect a life lived well. Let us help you in any way we can.
