Baby Dedication Celebration

Baby D 2023 (March) - PCO Image

Baby Dedication Celebrations are a special time where parents dedicate their child 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.

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 Baby Dedication event.

GUESTS    We recognize that having a supportive network of family and friends is important when raising up a child to love God. Because families will be seated together at tables, keep in mind that 8-10 people is the recommended total for each family table.


Parents will need to attend the Parent Meeting for the Baby Dedication date they choose.

The Homework

Yes, there is homework, but it's the good kind. Here are two short videos for you to watch, then download and print the "Imagine the End" homework card below. You will use this card to write 3-5 characteristics that you want to see in your child when they grow up. You will share these with your family and friends at the Baby Dedication event
