FAQ

May I have my child baptized at your church?

The sacrament of baptism is considered a blessing by God the Creator AND a commitment of your nuclear family and the church family of Rosedale Gardens Presbyterian Church. This commitment requires your family and the congregation to promise to nurture your child in the Christian faith. The commitment is taken seriously by the Pastors and congregation and should never be entered into lightly. One parent bringing their child for baptism must be a member of RGPC before baptism is considered. Baptisms are offered several times throughout the year and require consultation with the Pastors.

What do Presbyterians(USA) Believe?

In a Nutshell, Presbyterians believe in a triune God; Creator, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in the goodness of mankind and that the way to continue this goodness is to follow the path that Jesus Christ, our Savior, has demonstrated during his time on earth. We believe that Jesus Christ, God’s son, was born, lived among us on earth, was crucified and rose again to provide eternal life for everyone. Through God’s grace, not by good works, all who believe in Jesus Christ will live eternally with the Creator. Our hope is built on nothing less.

What is the weather policy at RGPC?

“When it is deemed necessary to cancel church events, or close the Church for any reason, it is the goal of the Church to make the decision as quickly as possible so that there is a minimum amount of confusion. For snow emergencies, we will attempt to make the decision no later than 6:00 a.m. In certain situations, it may be possible to make the decision to cancel evening events at the same time normal day operations are canceled. However, if it is necessary to cancel the evening activities at the Church on a separate basis, every effort will be made to announce the decision by 3:00 p.m.

In order to establish a notification process, we will take our lead from the Livonia Public Schools (LPS).  If LPS cancels classes due to snow or ice emergencies, the Church will be closed for the day/evening, e.g., church meetings. 

NOTE: The Church will be open if the LPS cancellation is due to cold weather.  This policy only applies to snow and ice emergencies, and Sunday services will be held.
