Baptisms

"Baptism is both God’s gift and our human response to that gift. It is a sign and seal of our common discipleship. Through baptism, Christians are brought into union with Christ, with each other and with the church of every time and place."
(Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry, World Council of Churches, 1982)

The Sacrament of Holy Baptism is one of two sacraments celebrated in the Cotuit Federated Church. (The other is the Sacrament of Holy Communion.) God's children of all ages are invited to receive the Sacrament. No one is too young or too old to receive this sign of God’s grace and is welcome to receive the love of God.

Those desiring the Sacrament of Baptism are asked to meet with the minister to discuss the meaning and importance of the Sacrament and the way in which the Sacrament will be included in the service of worship before choosing a date.

Call the church at 508-428-6163 or email at CFC436@comcast.net for further information.

Funerals

We at The Cotuit Federated Church offer our sanctuary and our staff to you and your family during this time of sadness. We offer these guidelines to help you make some necessary decisions at this time:

Funeral or Memorial Service? During a Funeral Service the casket is present, and the Funeral Home will contact the Church to make arrangements for the service. During a Memorial Service the urn of ashes may be present, if desired. The service may be scheduled shortly after death or at the convenience of the family.

Scheduling the use of the Church: Prior to making any arrangements, please contact the Church office at 508-428-6163 to arrange for a time for the service. This will assure the Church will be available to meet your needs.

Music: The minister will arrange for an organist unless other music is requested. When planning the service appropriate musical selections will be discussed.
