Life Events

Life is filled with exciting events, and for a Christian, many significant life events are celebrated with the family of God at church! Buffalo Covenant wants to join you in celebrating what God is doing in your life and in the lives of your loved ones.

Child Dedication

The Bible says that a baby is a blessing from God. When you decide to dedicate your son or daughter, you are acknowledging the awesome responsibility God has given you in raising your child. Child Dedication is a ceremony that expresses your desire as parents to raise your son or daughter in the ways of the Bible and to ask God to use your son or daughter for his purposes. You submit your will for your child to His will. When you dedicate your child, you are basically saying to Jesus, “We present our baby to you. We seek your blessing in this child’s life!”

Child Dedications are a part of our Sunday morning church worship and are scheduled regularly. Please call (763-682-1470) or e-mail the Church Office for more information or to arrange to have your child included in the next Child Dedication service.

Baptism

The practice of baptism is as old as the church, originating in the Gospels, when Jesus Himself was baptized in the River Jordan by John the Baptist. Early Christians were baptized, and the practice has continued through the ages to the present time.

We at BCC hold to the tradition of believer baptism for those who have committed to Christ as their Lord and Savior receiving new birth in Christ. This position stresses the sequence of hearing, repenting, and believing as the act of new birth. It is symbolic of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. This leads to baptism as the outward sign of the inner new birth of the believer. In baptism the believer makes public, often by immersion, the witness to this conversion and a pledge of his or her discipleship.

Buffalo Covenant Church practices both believer (adult) baptism and infant baptism. Believer baptism is scheduled once each year during the summer. Infant baptisms occur as needed throughout the year. If you want to know more, or are interested in baptism, please call (763-682-1470) or e-mail the Church Office to make an appointment with a Pastor.

Weddings

Our church and pastors are available for your wedding. Members may reserve the church up to one year in advance, others may reserve up to six months before your desired wedding date. Due to other church activities we are unable to accommodate weddings in the month of December, the two weeks prior to Palm Sunday, and Holy Week.

We have a deep concern that you have a happy and healthy marriage. Therefore, we require a premarriage process which we believe gives you the best start in your marriage. All couples using our church and/or pastors must take part in our premarriage counseling or have other counseling which meets our requirements. Our process takes time and so we ask that you begin at least six months prior to your wedding.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact via e-mail Barb Anderson or by calling the Church Office (763-682-1470).
