Child dedications are a time for parents to publicly declare their desire to raise their child to know Christ, and to commit to partnering with the church to do so. Once you’ve decided that you want to dedicate your child, here are five easy steps in the process: Step 1: Watch this video from Dave D’Angelo, our Family Matters Champion. Step 2: Prepare a brief blessing to read over your child during the dedication. Your blessing must be included on the Child Dedication Application for your application to be processed. Here are some sample blessings if you need inspiration! Step 3: Submit the application and a photograph of your child no later than two weeks before your dedication date. Step 4: Schedule a pre-dedication meeting with a Family Matters team member. Step 5: Arrive to your scheduled service 20 minutes before it begins. That’s it! We can’t wait to begin this journey with you.
