Have we been friends for a while and now you’re ready to explore what it means to be a part of Friendship Celebration? You’re ready for Next Steps.



Baptism is the way God makes us His children and adopts us into His family. If you or any of your family members, including infants, have never been baptized and would like to be baptized, or if you would like to learn more about baptism, please contact Pastor Matt. Baptisms are usually scheduled to happen during worship on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month, but they can happen anytime or anywhere.



If you’re new to the Christian faith or want to learn more about what the Lutheran Church teaches and believes, this class is for you! Pastor Matt will teach you the 6 chief parts of the Christian faith in this adult confirmation class. This class is held every fall and spring. This class is optional if you have been confirmed or are transferring from an LCMS congregation.

For information on the next Essentials Class please email Joy Kaufmann or call 714-955-7631.



Attend this luncheon to find out what it means to be part of the family at Friendship Celebration.

After the luncheon, you decide whether or not you’re ready to become a member of Friendship Celebration. This orientation is held every fall and spring.
