You are invited to give to the Baptismal Font Project. The funding plan  is based on half the project funded by designated gifts and the other half by the congregation through a special baptismal font appeal. The Baptismal Font Project will be unique in that you can designate your gift in honor or in memory of loved ones. A specific memorial book will be created to honor and remember these gifts.

Baptismal Font

It is three bowls, reminding us that we are baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The font will be fabricated out on one, single granite piece with water that cascades from one bowl to the next. The three bowls are at different heights for accessibility. The font’s size and design will be in balance with the altar and pulpit. There is also a design for a new paschal candle holder. The current holder will then be used in the columbarium.
