Did you know. . .
Certificates of Baptism, Confirmation, and Reception are tangible recognition from the church of significant milestones in each person's spiritual journey and of their commitment to Christian living. Presentation of certificates helps the church build relationships with youth and adults in the congregation. At the same time, certificates help persons remember and respond to their covenant relationship with God, church, and neighbor.
The Cross and Flame symbol relates The United Methodist church to God through Christ (cross) and the Holy Spirit (flame). The flame is a reminder of Pentecost when witnesses were unified by the power of the Holy Spirit and saw "tongues, as of fire" (Acts 2:3).
