Communion and Baptism

The United Methodist Church recognizes two sacraments in which Christ himself participated: Holy Communion and baptism. Learn more about the sacraments.

Communion Sundays

We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. Worshippers of all ages, including non-UUMC members, are welcome to receive the communion bread and juice. Gluten-free wafers are available.

If you are unable to attend UUMC services and want to participate in Communion, we will arrange for a brief ceremony to be conducted in your home, using the United Methodist Communion liturgy as well as bread and juice that has been consecrated during worship. To request Home Communion for yourself or a family member or friend, call the church office (517-351-7030) or contact one of our pastors.


Believing that baptism is an act of the church through which God offers grace, the United Methodist Church practices the baptism of persons of any age, ranging from infant to adult. All United Methodist baptisms take place in the context of a worship service. Because it is a divine act, we recognize as valid the baptisms of churches of other denominations and do not baptize persons more than once. In baptism, the congregation promises to care for and nurture the faith of the one being baptized. Therefore, we baptize those infants, children, and adults who will continue to be part of the life of the church. If you are considering baptism for yourself, your child, or someone close to you, please make an appointment for further conversation with one of our pastors.
