Baptism is God's proclamation of God's unconditional love. At TELC we baptize infants, children, and adults of all ages. In the waters of baptism we do not say yes to God, God says yes to us. Yes, God loves you. Yes, God forgives you. Yes, you are God's chosen. Yes, you are God's child. Do not hesitate to contact our office if you are interested or have questions about baptism.
Marriage is a gift of God, intended for the joy and mutual strength of those who enter it and for the well-being of the whole human family. Jesus affirmed the covenant of marriage and revealed God's own self-giving love on the cross. The Holy Spirit helps those who are united in marriage to be living signs of God's grace, love and faithfulness.

This is your day! We will work with you to build a wedding service that is uniquely yours. If you are interested in getting married at TELC, or having Pastor Eric officiate your offsite ceremony, the process can be started by contacting our church office.
Once a date has been confirmed, the couple will meet with Pastor Eric 2-3 times for pre-marital conversation. Pastor Eric will work with you to ensure a smooth and joyful ceremony.
At TELC, funeral services are better described as a celebration of life. We ask a few simple questions and build a unique and personal ceremony for everyone. Some of the questions we consider are: How do you want to see your loved one remembered? What does God want us to remember now?
