Water 1.backgroundFirst Congregational Church  will baptize those who have come to faith in Jesus as their Savior and Lord.  Upon request, we also baptize or dedicate children when presented by their believing parents.  Baptism is done by sprinkling or by immersion.  Baptism does not require membership in our church.  However, candidates for baptism are required to meet with our Pastor prior to scheduling and making arrangements.

If you are interested in being baptized or having your child baptized or dedicated, please contact the Pastor by calling the church office, (845) 343-5764, or by sending your request to the church email address (  If you have any questions regarding baptism, we would be happy to help you without any pressure or obligation.
