Baptisms, Weddings, Funerals

Baptisms, weddings, and funerals… It may feel strange to have these three things listed together; and yet they are all celebrations of what it means to live a life in the body of Christ.  We are all connected by our need for God’s peace at times of transition— birth of a child, wedding, or as we say farewell. 

In these times of Covid-19, we do things a little bit differently, but we also acknowledge these signs of hope in the midst of it.

About Celebrations of Life

Celebrations of Life


Baptism is an opportunity to celebrate God’s love and grace. Lutherans do baptize infants (and older children and adults), believing that it is God’s action and love pouring over us rather than our own efforts. You do not need to be a member to celebrate a baptism at Geneva Lutheran. Contact Michelle Lata for more information.


What a joy it is to celebrate with couples as they are joined in marriage! We consider this an important part of our ministry to the community, so couples do not need to be members to be married here. However, all weddings are conducted by our pastor.  Contact Pastor Trudy for more information.


As Christians, we trust the words of comfort in the Bible and in the service for Christian burial to comfort us at times of loss.  Working with Pastor Trudy, families and friends will prepare a service that honors all of who someone is and was to us.  You do not need to be a member for our congregation to walk with you in your time of need.  Contact Pastor Trudy for more information.
