Your children are not your children.  

They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,

And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

—from The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

The words of Kahlil Gibran have traditionally been spoken during Baptisms at Hope UCC. They convey sentiments long valued and honored among the parishioners. As children grow into their spiritual life at Hope, they will find themselves through the support of their church family.  


Baptism at Hope United Church of Christ is for all: infants, toddlers, pre-teens, teenagers, and adults. It is frequently incorporated as part of Sunday worship with arrangements being made well in advance with Pastor Carol Reynolds. Parents, sponsors, and the congregation all play a role in this special sacrament.  


For more information, contact Pastor Carol Reynolds at 920-743-2701 or via email.
