Special Moments


We love to celebrate a new life in Christ!

Baptism doesn’t make you a believer; it shows everyone that you are a believer.

Twice a year, Encounter celebrates those who continue their faith journey with this outward expression of an inward change.

We encourage you to share your story – how you’ve arrived at this moment in your walk with Jesus. Don’t worry! We’ll help you prepare something. Sharing your story will help others as they move closer to God.

Where you’re baptized isn’t as important as getting baptized. We have baptisms in our worship center, and once a year we head down to the river.

Baptism classes are held prior to the ceremony.


Baby Dedications

Dedicating a life to Christ

Parents have been given an awesome responsibility and opportunity to leave a legacy of faith in their children. When you dedicate your baby to the Lord, you are making a commitment before God, family, friends and the church that you will step into this awesome responsibility so your child may come to an early faith in Jesus.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Matthew 19:14

Encounter Church wants to partner with parents as you step into this God-given role.
