Family Baby Blessings

Recognizing that our children belong to God and following the example of Hannah in 1 Samuel 1:23-28, parents can make a public commitment to raise and train their children according to God’s Word. This commitment is during the Family Baby Blessing ceremony that is held during Family and Friends Sunday, which is on the third Sunday of every month.

Communion

Communion is a holy time of worship when the Christian church family comes together as one to celebrate Christ and what he has done for us through sacrifice. Communion, often referred to as the Last Supper or the Lord’s Supper and sometimes, the Eucharist is one of two Holy Ordinances commissioned by Christ, and practiced in our faith. It is a manifestation of His love and the supreme sacrifice given to liberate us from sin.

Weddings

We take the joining of a man and a woman in holy matrimony very seriously. This is the joining of two families to become one on the eyesight of God. The new couple thus begins their journey as a new family.

Upon making the decision to marry, PLEASE contact the church office (973) 642-2267 and ask to speak to a representative from the wedding ministry. It is imperative that a date and time be agreed to BEFORE you secure a reservation for a reception. This will eliminate any potential conflict and insure the coordination of a spirit filled wedding service.

The wedding ministry can also help a couple to arrange wedding specialty items such as :unity candles, programs, communion and etc.

Pre-Martial Counseling

Pastor Jefferson believes that all couples entering into marriage conducted under the auspices of Metropolitan Baptist Church receive pre-marital counseling. The wedding/marriage ministry will provide the necessary forms and work with the couples in arranging a pre-marital counseling session with the pastor.
