Rejoicing Over Renu’s and her son’s Baptisms!


This past Sunday, we were exceptionally blessed to bear witness to the baptism of Renu, Anand’s wife, and that of their younger son.

Rev. Augustin conducted the sacrament of baptism for the both of them.

We rejoice over their decision in publically committing to their relationship with Jesus and we pledge to support them as the BLC Family in their journey ahead!

Thanks be to God!

Welcome to the family, Jaryd!

Besides celebrating Passion/Palm Sunday today, we were also especially blessed to celebrate Jaryd’s baptism.


Our prayers and blessings go to Larry and Noree’s family as they raise Jaryd in the ways of the Lord, along with the help of godmother Clarice!


Let the little children come and do not forbid them – Early Communion at BLC

After service this morning, Rev. Augustin held an education session for parents to discuss early communion at BLC.

—“Early Communion” refers to permitting baptized children to begin receiving communion before confirmation. Rev. Augustin delivered a presentation by Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Truscott, which took us through biblical and historical views on early Communion. In summary:
  • —Documents of the early church make instruction and baptism requirements for communion
  • —Baptism is understood as the rite of admission to communion
  • —Once infants became the primary baptismal candidates, churches did not exclude them from communion (1 Cor 11 was no hindrance!)
  • —Later circumstances led to their exclusion from communion; infant communion had to be suppressed!
  • —ELCA, LCS and other Lutherans churches have moved to early communion
  • —At first, American Lutherans were concerned about avoiding the perception that confirmation/first communion gave full membership status
  • —Now ELCA emphasizes the idea that baptism admits one to the Supper regardless of one’s age
  • —LCS also emphasizes the relationship between baptism and first communion; talks about faith receiving the gifts of HC, rather than constituting basis of admission
