Parents, we are so glad that you are interested in participating in our Dedication Celebration! Your child is a precious gift from God and we look forward to partnering with you on your parenting journey. We hope that this event will be a memorable day where we can celebrate and honor the commitment you make to lead your child into a meaningful and lasting relationship with their Heavenly Father.

What Is Dedication?
Dedication Celebration is a time for parents to make a commitment before God to raise their children to know and love the Lord. This is the beginning of a journey where you, the parent, partner with us, the church. As a parent, you have the greatest influence on your child’s spiritual upbringing, teaching them what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Dedication is more than an event. It is an opportunity for you to take some time at the beginning of your journey as a parent to really think about what will matter the most in the life of your child; to talk together and decide what you value and what you can do today that will have the greatest impact on your child’s future.
What Are Your Next Steps?
Step 1: Check back for Fall Date
Step 2: Watch our two parenting videos. As you watch the videos that we’ve provided, we would like for you to do a little homework to prepare.
Step 3: On the provided Homework Card, please print, and write a description of the kind of person you hope your child will become over the next 18 years. Every year on their birthday, pull out the card. This exercise will give you a chance to evaluate how you’re doing as you lead your child spiritually and to remember the importance of your child’s relationship with their heavenly Father.
