We welcome all who wish to be baptized to do so. Once a person has been baptized at Diamond Lake Lutheran, he/she becomes a member. It is not uncommon for a child to be baptized and become a member before the parents through a transfer of membership, affirmation or by baptism.
The first step in arranging a baptism is to attend a baptism class. This class, which explores the promises made in Baptism, is required of all parents and must be attended prior to scheduling a baptism. We ask that parents attend a class each time they have a child baptized. Grandparents and sponsors are also welcome. There will be time to answer questions about the baptism day and how it will be a part of worship. You will also have an opportunity to select a baptism date. Baptisms may be scheduled on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays of the month at any worship service.
Baptism classes usually last about an hour. Registration is not required but you are welcome to sign up in advance. Check the calendar for upcoming classes.
