Baby Dedication Celebration

Baby Dedication Celebrations are a special time where parents dedicate their child (age birth to two years) to God with the support of family and close friends. This celebration is purposefully set aside from other church events to help families focus on the commitment they are making to raise their children to know and follow God. It's a memorable event that includes refreshments and a professional photographer to take your family portrait.

Baby Dedication

PARENTS    In order to prepare for the event, parents are required to attend a Parent Orientation and complete homework (yikes!). No worries, you'll want to do this homework. Also, you'll need to submit a candid photo of your children which will be shown during the worship services as well as during the BabyD event.

GUESTS    We recognize that having a supportive network of family and friends is important when raising up a child to love God. That's why we will provide you with special invitations upon registration. Because families will be seated together at tables, keep in mind that 8-10 people is the recommended total for each family table. Also, small children age 6 and under will be cared for in FirstKids in order to prevent distractions so you'll want to make your guests aware of this. The small children will join us when it's time for refreshments. You'll need to RSVP for those at your table as well as children who will require childcare.
