Baptism Class

We welcome all to the baptism font at Calvary! – both young and old, both members and non-members. At Calvary, baptisms happen in worship, both Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.

In preparation for baptism, we ask that you – the baptism family, and (if available) your sponsors – attend one of our Baptism orientation class, held monthly at Calvary. (Please note: you can attend the class anytime before the baptism event, even before your baby is born!)  We believe that this is important, not only to understand what it means to have your child baptized, but to connect with others who are in the same life-stage as you.

For more info, please read our Baptism Class Brochure. For any additional questions and to schedule your baptism, please contact Cathy in the church office (701-772-4897).

Here are the dates for our upcoming classes:
