Frequently Asked Questions
Who should be baptized?
People of all ages can be baptized at Roselle UMC. Non-members are encouraged to seek membership as soon as possible after being baptized. We baptize by sprinkling Holy Water and making the sign of the cross on the forehead with anointing oil to invite the presence of the Holy Spirit.
The United Methodist Church recognizes baptisms from other faiths and churches and therefore does not re-baptize people, but we do encourage people to attend a special baptismal reaffirmation worship service to remember their baptisms.
When do baptisms occur?
Sprinkling and anointing with oil occur during all worship services on select Sundays throughout the year.
How do I schedule a baptism?
All baptisms are scheduled through online registration or contact the Pastor. Please click on the link to Register for Baptism above.
After you register for your Baptism, you will receive additional instructions by email and be contacted to schedule a one-on-one meeting with our pastor to discuss your baptism and walk through the logistics a few weeks prior to the date.
If you have any questions, please contact our Pastor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
