life events


it is important to honor life events through infant baptism or dedication, believer baptism, first communion, weddings and the loss of a loved one.


Infant Baptism & Dedication

Orchard Hill Church, practices both baptism and dedication for children. Parents can choose, based on their own theological conviction.

Baptism - Baptism for children is celebrated through sprinkling as a sign and seal of a Covenant Relationship.

Dedication - In Dedication, parents bring their children before the Lord as an act of worship and commitment – a time to publicly declare a desire to raise children in such a way that they come to a point of personal faith.

Believer baptism

In Matthew 28, Jesus gives the great commission to his disciples commanding them to "go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit." Orchard Hill celebrates Christians making the decision to publicly display their faith.

first Communion

First Communion is a celebration of a child’s first experience receiving communion as they remember Christ and His sacrifice for them. Children in grades 2nd - 5th grade are invited to participate. The Pastoral and Kids' Ministry Staff will walk with you and your child through a preparatory season leading up to Communion Sunday. We provide learning experiences to prepare your child for this sacrament: two parent/child meetings, three weeks of Biblical teaching in Kidzburgh and take home materials. The goal of this preparatory season is to help you and your child to discern if your child is ready to participate in this special milestone of faith.

Contact Emily Roberts with any questions or fill out the form below.


Weddings are a special moment in a couple’s life. It is a spiritual celebration where the couple seeks God’s blessing on the marriage. Orchard Hill is pleased to partner with you as you prepare for this important step in your life. Please download the wedding brochure for details.
