My newborn granddaughter will be being baptized soon in a WELS church. The baby's father is WELS, but the rest of his family (parents and siblings) are Disciples of Christ. Will his family be welcome at the baptism? They are leery of coming, for fear of being ostracized.
They would most certainly be welcome! All are welcome to attend our worship services.
While our closed communion practice addresses the matter of who can receive the sacrament, all people are welcome to hear the proclamation of God’s word by their attendance in our worship services.
Congratulations to your family on the gift of life and new life from God.
