Fort McMurray First United Church Welcomes You

Baptism: "We welcome you with open arms. We invite you to come to be baptized into the life and love of God."  (From our Liturgy of Baptism)                                      


We are called as a baptized and baptizing church, and we at First United Church see this as an important part of our mission.




There are no set Sundays for the Sacrament of Baptism. We find it is helpful to be flexible because the challenges of work schedules for so many of us in Fort McMurray and of the availability of loved ones who are visiting from away.

Many seek baptism for their child when they are infants, but be assured that children of any age are welcome, as are adults seeking baptism for themselves.

Those who are interested in baptism for their children or themselves are asked to meet with Rev. Donalee for a 'get-to-know-you' session and talk about baptism and ask any questions you have. You are welcome to make an appointment to come to the church or Rev. Donalee can also visit you at home.

To make an appointment, call the church office at 780-880-3771.
