Congregational Churches practice two sacraments: Baptism and Communion.
Baptism is recognition of God's blessing of a new life in Christ. At North Church, the Baptism ceremony includes an affirmation by the Congregation, welcoming the newly baptized child or adult and pledging love and support as a member of our Church family.
Holy Communion is a reaffirmation of Jesus' promise to all of us at the Lord's Supper. It is a renewal of faith. At North Church, we practice open Communion, welcoming all. As our Senior Minister says during Communion: "This is the joyful feast of the people of God. Men and women, youth and children, come from the east and the west, from the north and the south, and gather around Christ's table. Come if you are a member of this church, of any other church, or of no church at all, let your faith be your guide."
