Baptism marks us with the Sign of the Cross, initiating us into the Family of God. Infants, children, and adults are prepared on an individual basis. Click here for the Baptism Form.
Receiving Communion, or the Holy Eucharist, is encouraged by all the baptized, regardless of age. We invite children to join us at Jesus' table as soon as parents are comfortable. Formal education about this most holy sacrament and remembrance of Jesus' life commences when the child reaches the age of reason. Any baptized person of any faith tradition is welcome to receive Communion.
The sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated to restore and heal our broken relationships with God and neighbor, caused through our imperfection and sin. Individual appointments for reconciliation are scheduled with our pastor. In addition, communal penance services are held during Advent and Lent.
Confirmation is a furthering of our baptismal initiation, anointing us with the Holy Spirit. We will prepare youth as they are ready and join with other Colorado ECC communities for Confirmation.
Witnessing a marriage is our great privilege. Engaged couples (gay and straight) are encouraged to contact our pastoral staff to discuss the individual situation. We engage in marriage preparation, a series of meetings with the presider, to explore the riches of the marriage covenant and enhance the relationship of the couple, followed by planning the ceremony. Three to six months preparation time is recommended. A prior marriage is not necessarily an obstacle to a sacramental marriage or union.
Ordination, a call to ordained ministry as a deacon, priest, or bishop, is open to men and women, celibate, single, and married. Guidelines for preparation are available on the ECC website here.
The Sacrament of the Sick is the anointing of a person with holy oils when s/he is suffering illness or instability. Celebrated with family and friends, the ritual and prayers call upon God's healing mercy and grace to restore wholeness and connect to God's abundant life.
