Baptisms are usually scheduled on the fourth Sunday of the month and for the baptismal family's convenience, the officiating pastor will officiate baptisms at either our 9:30 or 11 a.m. services. Please make reservations via email to Veronica Smoot at least six weeks prior to the requested baptism date to allow for necessary approvals and publications.

If you are a non-member and want your infant or child to be baptized: PHPC follows the PC(USA) Book of Order in that at least one parent must be an active member of the congregation. However, you may schedule a baptism for an infant or child as a non-member who is planning to complete the New Member Class prior to the date of the baptism.

For more information about when our New Member Classes are held or how to join, please visit our How to Join page.


Please email your baptism requests and any questions to Veronica Smoot at or 214-368-6348, ext. 133.
