Baptism & Communion


Infant baptisms are scheduled for the 8:15 and 11:00 a.m. worship services on the first Sunday of every month except for March.

For a baptism to be scheduled, at least one of the child's parents must be a member of Cedar Springs or currently involved in a New Members' class. For more information about becoming a member, click here.

The first step in scheduling a baptism is to make an appointment for a meeting with Andrew Keasling, Executive Pastor & Pastor to 30s: (865) 309-4853 or At this time, a date will be scheduled for your child to be baptized.


Each summer in August we hold an immersion baptism service at Fort Loudon Lake, usually on one of the first Sundays after school starts back. The 2017 service was August 20 at 3:00 p.m.


Cedar Springs has communion services every Sunday morning in both the 8:15 and 11:00 services except for the first Sunday of the month when we have baptisms. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper in festive joy, singing songs of praise as we process to the Lord’s Table, there to receive the bread and wine, with a pastoral blessing from the elders. Those that are in the balcony are served from trays while seated.
