Child Dedication Celebration

Isn’t parenting wonderful?

And also a little…exhausting, exhilarating, messy, lovely overwhelming, amazing? Child Dedication Celebration is an event that sets up a partnership between your family and your church — a partnership that will encourage you, ease your anxieties, offer you resources, and ultimately lead your child to develop faith in Jesus. Parents and families that are dedicating themselves to the Lord are welcome to come and celebrate this new partnership!

Baptism Celebration

We love celebrating lives that are being transformed by the love of Jesus! 

This is a powerful act that expresses your commitment to Him! You may wonder if you are ready to be baptized. You don’t have to know everything about God and the Bible. You simply need to understand and agree with these simple statements:

  • You believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God
  • You accept Jesus as the only Savior for sin in your life. No one else can make you pure.
  • You are ready to make Jesus the Lord of your life and start living for Him.

If you are ready to take the next step in your relationship with Jesus through baptism, connect with us and we would love to start this journey with you.
