Woodside loves to welcome children into God’s family through baptism. We view it as a partnership. During the baptism ceremony the parents and the congregation promise to teach the child to love and follow Jesus. This partnership is so essential for the spiritual growth of the child that we ask parents to first commit to becoming part of the Woodside community. After taking the Putting Down Roots Class and joining Woodside, the family can contact the church office (215-493-4145) and select a service on a specific Sunday for the baptism. Our pastor will visit with you the week before that Sunday to go over the details of the baptism ceremony. Presbyterians view the whole church as the godparent but it’s fine if you wish to select godparents for your child. We encourage you to invite them to the service and have them stand with you.
