Our baby dedication celebrations are held two times per year, generally once in the Fall and once in the Spring. The event is meant to serve as a way for you as parents to begin thinking about what your child needs most – and we believe that is love. Yes, your love, but more importantly, the love of their heavenly Father.

Our hope is that through Baby Dedication, you will establish a commitment to raising your child to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. And not only that, but we want to partner with you in this endeavor.
Baby Dedication is a three part event which includes a Parent Orientation Class, a Celebration, and a Ceremony.

• The Parent Orientation Class is an opportunity for parents to see what a partnership with the church could look like. This is also a great opportunity to learn all about Baby Dedication and have any questions answered about the events leading up to and including the Ceremony. A tour of the entire Next Generation Ministry is included during this class and childcare is provided.

• The Celebration is a social for families and close friends to meet other families and celebrate this special time together. A photographer will offer family photos during this event and children are welcome to attend with parents!

• The Ceremony is an opportunity for parents to publically declare that you want to raise your child to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe that a child must be old enough to understand what it means to put their faith in Jesus Christ before they can be baptized.

Announcements for this event will be made leading up to the Parent Orientation Class and registration will be available online.
