Child Dedication

May 9, 2015

Child Dedication is a time to publicly commit to put God first in your home and to trust in Him as your source of direction as you lead your family. It is also a time for you to share with your closest friends and family what is most important to you and to ask them for their prayers and support.

These early years in a child’s life are incredibly important and impacting. No one will have more influence on your child than you, but we are excited to be able to partner with you at the beginning of your parenting journey as you guide your child to know what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ

*This event is not infant baptism. We believe that when people are old enough to understand what it means to put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, they should have the opportunity to make that choice for themselves. A preschooler is not able to understand sin, forgiveness, the sacrifice our Savior made for us, and what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This event is about your commitment as parents to lead your children into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, so that as they get older, you are able to guide them and to help them understand what that means.
