IUCC Welcomes Jordan Brooke Long into its Family

December 15, 2002 was another important day in the life of Incarnation United Church of Christ in Emmitsburg.  It was the third Sunday in Advent, and the sanctuary was decorated with poinsettias and a live Christmas tree in honor of Christ’s birthday. 

Pastor Ted led the congregation in the baptismal service for Jordan Brooke Long, daughter of Brian and Krista Long, granddaughter of Edie Long, and great-granddaughter of Anna Margaret Martin, all members of Incarnation UCC. 

The children then listened to Pastor Ted Haas’ story time,  “The Wonder Gift,” about a small child from a large family who had very little of his own, but gave a gift to a needy child of his very own beloved storybook.  Because he gave from his heart, his gift was deemed the most precious. 

Following the baptism, Victoria Long, cousin of Jordan Brooke, honored the baptism by singing “Not That Far from Bethlehem.”   

All are invited and welcome to join us for worship on Sundays at 10:00 a.m.
