Our next baby dedication will be on Sunday, May 12th.Registration Form
The Baby Dedication Celebration is designed for Christian families with young children who desire and are committed to raising and growing their children before the Lord in a godly and prayerful way until their children can make a decision on their own to follow God. Our hope is for this time to be a meaningful family experience and we encourage you to invite your close family members and friends to join in on the celebration!
Please note that this event is not an infant baptism. When children are old enough to understand and make the decision of putting their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, they will have the opportunity to make their own decision to be baptized. This event is about your promise as parents to lead your children in a growing relationship with Jesus, where you will guide and instruct them in obedience to God.
We’re so excited that you are considering to dedicate your child to the Lord! Because this dedication is a commitment before God to raise your child in a godly and prayerful manner, it is important that we know that the child’s parent(s) are believing Christians. Though no one is perfect, our encouragement is that you as a parent would model godly character for your children by walking in obedience to God’s Word. If you are not living in obedience to God, we want to help lead you as parents towards living a godly life. We encourage you to meet with one of our pastors to discuss this beforehand and to receive prayer and counsel.

• We commit to training our children in the ways of the Lord (Prov. 22:6) by praying for them (Job 1:5), setting a godly example for them (Prov. 20:7), and disciplining them in a godly manner (Prov. 29:15,17; 13:24)
• We commit to keeping a loving, encouraging, transparent and supportive atmosphere in our home
• We commit to actively participate in church life with enthusiasm and to train our children to serve the Lord and His people
