Our Sacraments

  • In the United Methodist Church there are two sacraments that we celebrate; Baptism and Holy Communion. Through baptism we are marked as disciples of Jesus Christ and it is seen as an outward sign of the inward grace God gives. We baptize infants, children, youth, and adults and traditionally we use the mode of sprinkling but we will also use the other two forms of pouring or immersion if requested by the recipient. We also acknowledge and celebrate the baptisms of those joining the church from other denominations and we do not re-baptize individuals.

 

  • Holy Communion is open to all worshipers who desire to receive the sacrament. One does not need to be a member of Vinings UMC or any church in order to receive the grace of God that is offered through communion. We do ask that those who come and partake of Holy Communion come with a heart desiring God’s forgiveness and will seek to live a life that is pleasing to God. Communion is served to children as well as adults as God’s grace is open to all people. We offer communion every week. Holy Communion is part of our worship to nurture and sustain us throughout the week.
