    BAPTISMAL RENEWAL SUNDAY - January 7, 2018 10:30 a.m. Come Pick a Shell and Renew Your Connection with the Community of Faith!

    Come Join Us for Baptismal Renewal Sunday, January 7th, 2018.   This is an annual worship experience at the Presbyterian Church at Shrewsbury, when you will be able to recommit to your baptismal vows (or those made on your behalf if you were a baby!). Noting that Jesus came for Baptism to John the Baptist in all four Gospels, we commemorate that event, and renew our own Baptism. From a bowl of water, worshippers will be able to come forward to pick a shell to symbolize Baptism for the upcoming year. A Sea-Shell, particularly a Scallop shell, was one of the most ancient of Christian Symbols, used for Baptism.
