Child Dedication at Calvary
When it comes to children’s ministries, part of our mission is to partner with parents and grandparents. We believe that what happens at home is more important than what happens here on a Sunday. Consider this: we get about 40 hours a year with a child, while parents get over 3000 hours with their children. They have the greatest spiritual impact in the lives of their children.
Child Dedications is one way in which we partner with parents. When a parent or guardian chooses to dedicate their child, they make a commitment to raise their child in a way that honors God and points them to Jesus. At the same time, we as a church commit to support and partner with these parents and grandparents in their efforts to raise their children with Jesus at the center.
We're often asked if dedication is the same as baptism. At Calvary, we believe that a child must be old enough to understand what it means to put their faith in Jesus Christ before they can be baptized. Child dedication is an opportunity for parents/guardians to publicly declare that they want to raise their child to develop their own relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our next dedication service will take place in the Spring. If you would like to be contacted when registration opens for Spring dedications, please fill out the Interest Form below.
