Child Dedication & Infant Baptism Service
Sep

4:00 PM16:00

Child Dedication & Infant Baptism Service

We are excited to be offering a Child Dedication & Infant Baptism service on Saturday, September 14 from 4pm-5pm!

Whether you baptize or dedicate your child is a decision for each family to make. Families can choose either option as a commitment to raise their children in the ways of God. Children who are baptized will have the opportunity to confirm their baptism during the middle school years and children who are dedicated can make the decision to experience believers baptism in the future.

Both dedication and baptism are families making the same commitment: including teaching and training the child in God’s Word, demonstrating examples of godliness, disciplining according to God’s ways and praying earnestly for their child to come to know the free gift of salvation Jesus offers.

Learn more about Infant Baptism and Child Dedication below!
