THE BASICS ABOUT BABY DEDICATION
Baby Dedication provides parents with an opportunity to express a desire to spiritually nurture and lead their child into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. As a church and children’s ministry, we are excited to partner with you in this journey, but ultimately you must teach your child what it means to follow Jesus.
We want this to be a meaningful experience for your family, so we’ve created several exercises that will help you capture the significance of your child’s dedication. At first glance, things like choosing a life verse and selecting a prayer partner may seem a little daunting, but our goal is not to create extra work. We believe that doing these things really will make the experience even more special for you and your family.
The Baby Dedication ceremony lasts about an hour and is an intimate gathering that celebrates the commitment you are making to guide your child spiritually. Feel free to invite family and friends, in addition to your prayer partner, to join the celebration with you. The morning will include a short message from one of our leaders, prayer time for your family, photo opportunities, and refreshments.
PARENT ORIENTATION CLASS
Parent orientation is a prerequisite for Baby Dedication. This class provides parents with a vision for NEXT Jr., a picture of a partnership with our church, and logistical details for the ceremony itself. Parent orientation classes are scheduled for the weekend prior to Baby Dedication.
