Parenting is a wonderful privilege and a tremendous responsibility! At Community Church, we recognize how challenging the parenting role can be, especially in the world today. To come alongside the young families in our church, we offer parents the opportunity to dedicate themselves and their children to the Lord as they enter into this significant role as a mom or dad.
Dedication is not baptism for the child, and it has no salvific effect upon children. Rather, through this Biblical ceremony modeled by Jesus' own dedication (Luke 2:22-40), parents have the opportunity to present their child before God and their church family in a public covenant; they commit to lead by example, to raise their children in a God-honoring home, and to help their children know the Lord personally someday.
In preparation for the dedication, each child and family is prayed over with intention and purpose. If you are interested in having your child dedicated, or to discuss this process in detail, you can fill out the form below or call the church office to set up a time to meet with Pastor Adam. The registration form is attached below.
Our next parent-child dedication class is scheduled for Tuesday, November 15th at 6:30 pm. Our next dedication will take place on the first week of Advent: Sunday, November 27, 2022. If you'd like to have your child dedicated before our next class, please contact our church office.
