Special Services at Neighborhood Church

In addition to our 9:00 and 11:00AM weekly worship services, Neighborhood Church has a variety of what we call "Special Services" which allow us to celebrate or reflect depending on the occasion.

These Special Services include Weddings, Baptisms, Memorials, Christmas, Lenten, and Easter services, and a special All-Saints Vespers held near All Saints Day.

Seasonal Special Services as well as special events taking place during our weekly Sunday services can be found on in News and Events, the Neighborhood Notes,  and the Neighborhood Church WAVE.

 

The Sacrament of Baptism

"And as He was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended upon him, in bodily form like a dove."  (Luke, 3: 21-22)

Baptism is a rebirth of intentions.  Parents who intend to raise their child in the Christian faith acknowledge that all life belongs to God.  An adult seeking baptism intends to approach God through a relationship with Christ.

Baptism is open to all.  It is the rite of inclusion into the Body of Christ, the church.  It is God's answer to the question of how a person can be born a second time; therefore we assume new names in baptism, our Christian names.  Thus, baptism is often called a Christening."

Memorial Services

A memorial service is a service of worship of the Christian church.  In the service we seek the presence of God so that God may act to bring comfort, strength, and peace to our lives.

For All People
Neighborhood Church is a "house of prayer for all people" and its availability does not depend on church membership, virtue, or social standing.  Use of the church to celebrate a loved one's life is based solely on the availability of the sanctuary, the staff, and the use of the traditional Christian liturgy.  A memorial service may also be held in a funeral home or in a private residence.

Role of the Pastor
At the time of death and immediate call to one of the pastors, no matter the hour, is appropriate.  The experience of the ministers may be very helpful in making crucial decisions.  The ministers will assist in every way they are capable.

The Memorial Service
The service expresses the Christian conviction of eternal life.  Its content includes reading of prayers, scriptures, and poems as well as personal remembrances and a brief sermon.  There is an abbreviated rite of committal at the closing of the service.

A graveside committal service may be either before or after the memorial service, at the family's request.
