Baby Dedications

Congratulations!  You are the proud parent of a new little life!  We are looking forward to partnering with you on this your journey of parenting that you have just embarked on, or are continuing on if your new little baby is joining siblings. J

This Faith Journey Milestone of Baby/Child Dedication is more than a one time church family celebration event; it is first of all a time to renew your commitment to love God and His Word in your home (Deuteronomy 6: 5-7).  Then, it is taking the beginning steps of having the awesome privilege and responsibility of being the primary faith influencer of your child.  As we commit to partnering with you in this journey of guiding your child in their faith in Jesus, we have put together these steps to help you begin…

  1. Fill out an application to request a date to have your child dedicated.  You can get this from the church office, and return it there when you have it completed!
  1. Walk through the resource that has been created to help you prepare for the celebration of Milestone #1: Baby dedication!  Pastor Geoff and Pastor Vicki have put together 4 parenting messages; we are asking that you listen to 3 prior to dedication.  They can be accessed below, podcasted, or listened to on a CD.  They will guide you in focusing on what matters most as you parent your little one.  The messages that will be available to you are:
    • The Journey Begins!
    • Marriage: A Firm Parenting Foundation
    • Single Parenting Encouragement
    • Values to Build Upon

           You will listen to three messages: #1, #2 or #3, and #4.

  1. Schedule a meeting with the pastor who will be conducting your Baby Dedication, and an orientation meeting with Pastor Vicki to introduce you to children’s ministry.  These could be separate, or combined.

We pray that God will bless you on this very exciting journey of parenting, of guiding your child to know, love, and live for Jesus!

The Journey Begins!
