The baby dedication service is a public declaration before God and the Church family that every child is a gift from God and that the parents seek God's blessings, guidance, help and wisdom for the child's upbringing. The parents recognize that with His help they will do their best to set a Biblical example for the child. God places great value on the life of the child. "Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him" (Psalms 127:3). This reminds us that children are not only from the Lord but they are a reward from Him. During our service we incorporate these themes by celebrating the birth of your child, praying for your child and praying for you as a parent. The baby dedication service is as much a dedication of the parents as it is for the baby being dedicated.
Babies can be dedicated at any of our three weekend services, which a maximum of three dedications per service.
