In the spirit of vitality, graciousness, and love, FMHPC welcomes all couples who seek spiritual growth and a community of faith. First Meridian Heights helps couples prepare for marriage and journeys with them through all stages of marriage. If you are considering using our church for your wedding ceremony, we encourage you to visit any Sunday and to set up a meeting with our church wedding coordinator. View our Wedding Guide, which provides greater detail, or contact the church office at (317) 283-1305.

BAPTISMS

Baptism is the sign and seal of becoming part of the community of Jesus Christ. In baptism the gathered church publicly recognizes and celebrates that the one being baptized is a beloved Child of God, marked forever by the grace of Jesus Christ. Baptism is open to all who claim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and who wish to join in the membership of First Meridian Heights. We believe in baptism for infants, children, youth, and adults.

If you wish for your child to be baptized, we typically ask that at least one parent is a member of the church. When a child is baptized, her/his parent(s) answer the questions of faith for their child and promise to raise her/him in the church. When the child reaches sixth grade, s/he is invited to “confirm” the promises made by her/his parent(s) by participating in a confirmation class and officially joining in the membership of the congregation. All those interested in learning more about the sacrament of baptism are invited to call the church office to discuss details. 

CONFIRMATION


Confirmation is the process through which the youth join the church. Youth are given the opportunity to “confirm” what their parents claimed on their behalf in baptism–that Jesus is our Lord and Savior. We invite youth 6th grade and older to join this class, which is held from 11:00 a.m. - noon on seven Sundays from January to May.
