Baptism and Membership
Each baby born is truly a miracle and blessing in the eyes of the family of Covington First UMC. When these children are brought by their parents to be Baptized, not only just the parents, but the congregation as well, promise to love, nurture and guide these children on their spiritual journey with God.
