We love it when families have fun together! Our family fun nights are for parents and kids to learn, play, laugh, and connect with God together. You can expect music, games, incredible true stories from the Bible, and lots of fun!

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.

Child Dedication FAQs

+ Is there an age requirement for my child to be dedicated?
There is no set age requirement, although most children are dedicated as an infant. Some parents dedicate children up to 5 years old, usually for the following reasons: The parent(s) are new believers in Christ and their children were not dedicated when they were infants. Or the parent(s) are having a younger child dedicated and want to have their older child dedicated at the same time.
+ Can a single parent participate in child dedications?
Yes! Child dedication signifies the commitment of parents, including single parents, to do their best to raise their child to be a follower of Jesus.
+ Will I have to say anything at the celebration?
Don’t worry, you won’t be asked to give a speech! During the celebration, we’ll ask all the families to come up on stage and verbally agree to raise their child to follow Jesus.
+ Will we assign godparents at the celebration?
You don’t have to select godparents, but we encourage you to invite friends and family members who are committed to supporting your family to come to the celebration.

We love seeing kids make a decision to follow Jesus! During this interactive 45 minute baptism class we talk together about what baptism means and how Jesus made it possible for us to follow Him. Bring your family, your questions, and get ready to celebrate baptism!

 

Baptism FAQS

+ Do I need to attend with my child?
This is a milestone in your child’s life so we ask that at least one parent attend the class.
+ What does my child need to bring?
They can bring their Bible and a pen to the class. We will give them the baptism booklet that we use in the class.
+ Will my child be baptized right after class?
We don’t usually baptize kids the same day as the class, although that can be arranged. We have Baptism Celebrations twice a month and if your child is ready to take the plunge after the class they are invited to join us for the next Baptism Celebration.
+ Can I baptize my baby?
Rather than baptizing infants, we encourage parents to dedicate their babies. Child Dedication Celebration is an event that sets up a partnership between your family and your church and allows families to publicly commit to raise their child to follow Jesus.
