We believe that dedicating your child to the Lord is a big event in the life of your family!
We encourage every family to make this commitment to the Lord, their children, and their church. We look forward to participating in this exciting time with your family. Our next child dedication event is scheduled for March 29th, 2020, during both first and second services. Please take a moment to REGISTER HERE.
Is having my child dedicated the same as having him/her christened or baptized?
Dedication and baptism are not synonymous terms. We believe a person must make a decision to be baptized. However, through dedication you are acknowledging that your child is a blessing from God and that you desire God's blessing in your child's life.
How old does my child have to be? How old is too old?
There is no minimum age for your child to be dedicated. Students in middle school and higher are encouraged to attend our NEXT STEPS classes, where they'll learn more about baptism.
Is there a class that will explain things further?
A mandatory parent class will be held two weeks prior to the event. Parents will learn the basics of dedication, have the opportunity to meet the Student Ministries team, and ask questions.
