Child dedications are a joint expression of a parent’s desire to raise godly children and our church’s commitment as a church to support you.

We would love for you to join us as we gather to celebrate and support the families participating in this special dedication event.


What is a family dedication?

A family dedication is a promise that parents make before God, their family, and the church to raise their child in the Christian faith.


The dedication service provides parents the opportunity to publicly express their personal commitment to follow Jesus and commit to spiritually nurture their child to know and experience God's grace and truth.


The service is also a time for the congregation to promise publicly that we will support the parents while they raise their child.

What should I expect?

You, the parent(s) and your kiddo(s) will be called onto the stage to answer a few simple questions with "yes". The congregation will respond in kind.

Light refreshments will be served after the service. This is an entire family service, so please plan to have all your kiddos with you upstairs as the downstairs Kid Min space will be closed.
