We are excited that you are interested in baptism!
If you are presenting your child for baptism, at least one of the parents must be an active, baptized member at Restoration.
If you are an adult seeking baptism, we would love to talk with you about what it means to you in your walk as a Christian.
Upcoming, available baptism dates:
- Sunday, January 7, 2024 (Feast of the Baptism of the Lord)
- Saturday, March 30, 2024 (Great Vigil of Easter, adults only, 8:30pm)
- Sunday, May 19, 2024 (Pentecost)
First step, please use the button below to fill out the baptism form.
Secondly, if you are presenting your child for baptism, both parents must attend one of our preparation meetings before the baptism. Adults being baptized will have their own individual meeting with a member of clergy. This is a great time to hear more about God’s gift in baptism, Restoration’s view on this important decision, and for you to ask any questions you may have. The upcoming dates for preparation will be posted here as the baptism dates get closer.
Each year, the Bishop visits Restoration and will confirm candidates who have been baptized and are seeking to make a public profession of their faith. A confirmation teaching and training series led by Restoration clergy will precede the confirmation service.
We are excited you are interested in getting married at Restoration. It is our hope that before you enter into marriage, you will each make a serious commitment to follow Jesus Christ and invite Him to be a part of your life together as husband and wife. To live consciously in the presence of God, and to call on Him daily for His wisdom and love, is the greatest way to build a healthy and strong relationship with one another.
Getting Married at Restoration
In the doctrinal statement of Restoration Anglican Church, “We acknowledge God’s creation of humankind as male and female and the unchangeable standard of Christian marriage between one man and one woman as the proper place for sexual intimacy and the basis of the family.”
In order to get married at Restoration, either the bride or the groom must be an active member. Both the bride and the groom must be baptized Christians. If either the bride or the groom has been previously married and divorced, the bishop of our diocese must approve the remarriage. (This process takes longer, so please contact a Restoration clergy member as soon as possible.) All weddings at Restoration must be approved by and are at the sole discretion of the rector.
Clergy from Restoration always preside at weddings at Restoration. With approval from the Rector, clergy from outside our parish are welcome to assist.
The First Step
The first step in getting married at Restoration is to meet with Nathan Dickerson, who coordinates weddings at our church. The purpose of this meeting is to get to know you individually and as a couple and to assess your readiness for entering the pre-marriage program.
Below is our wedding guide, which gives details about the items listed here as well as additional details about the ceremony and space at Restoration.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your family as we give thanks for the life of your loved one and worship our Lord and Maker. We are honored to be a part of this remembrance. One of our clergy will meet with you and talk about your hopes and desires for this memorial service. In our funeral guide below, we have outlined some of the details we will discuss and some expectations for how these worship services work at Restoration. We will be praying for you and ready to assist you and your family in whatever way we can during this time of mourning and transition.
