People of all ages can be baptized at Resurrection. 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. Once a year, we hold a baptism by immersion worship service in the Memorial Garden at our Leawood location.
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 baptism worship service to remember their baptisms.
Sprinkling and anointing with oil occur during all worship services on select Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year. Four times each year, we have special baptism services in the Wesley Covenant Chapel for up to 30 people to be baptized.
All baptisms are scheduled through online registration. To register for a baptism date, you will need your registration access code from the baptism class confirmation email.
Step One: Register for a baptism class. In this class, one of our pastors discusses the history, theology, meaning and responsibilities of baptism and its associated membership in the church. Our classes will be offered via Zoom for the foreseeable future. You will receive the link to sign in on the Monday prior to your scheduled class time.
Step Two: For safety during COVID restrictions, we are offering small baptism services. As dates for these become available and/or when we are able to resume baptisms during worship, those on our waiting list will be notified about available dates. Please add your name to the waiting list (we will contact those on the wait list in the order requests are received).
We record video of the baptisms in each worship service and make those videos available for family to download.
The week following the baptism, the Baptism video should be available on our Vimeo page. If your family’s Baptism video isn’t on the first page, search by clicking on the search icon above the videos.
