We believe that baptism is a choice someone makes after they personally make a decision to trust in Jesus as their personal Savior. Therefore, we celebrate our children declaring their faith in Jesus as their Savior at our Family Baptism Celebration. Our baptism celebrations take place immediately following the last Sunday morning service in our outside baptism pool.
Friends and family are invited and encouraged to attend. Parents are also welcomed to be baptized with their children.
We want children to understand the decision they are making through baptism. Therefore, our required "Baptism Class" focuses on what the Bible says about sin, forgiveness, baptism, and a personal relationship with Jesus. It's casual, fun and interactive. We require that one parent attend the class with the child being baptized but both parents are more than welcome to attend. Each family leaves with a resource to utilize at home for further conversation. We offer this class on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings prior to the Family Baptism Celebration.
Our next Family Baptism Celebrations will be on Sunday, March 7, 2021 or Sunday, May 16, 2021. Our Baptism Class dates will be posted at a later date. You can register here. You can register here.
We desire to celebrate with parents and mark this joyous milestone in a way that will impact families for a lifetime. As a part of this celebration, parents will create a written blessing over their child, and receive a framed memento from the church to daily remind them of their significant role in the spiritual journey of their child. Our prayer is this dedication process will initiate the foundation for families to fall in love with Jesus with all their heart, soul, and strength.
Upcoming Dedication Dates: November 29, 2020; February 14, 2021; April 18, 2021; and June 20, 2021
This is a one-time, one-hour class typically offered two weeks prior to the dedication and is designed for parents to learn what it means to impart a Godly legacy to their children. In doing so, it inspires parents to invest in the things that will matter most to their child’s future. We want parents to know the most important decision their child will ever make is to put their faith and trust in their heavenly Father. This class is a prerequisite for parents who would like to dedicate their children at one of our upcoming child dedication services.
Legacy Class Dates: There is a Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. and a Sunday at 11:00 a.m. option for each Child Dedication date. You will find the Legacy Class dates when you register.
Those wishing to participate in our dedication service are asked to complete and submit the online registration form below. We will make every effort to honor your requested date for child dedication, but due to service programming, space is limited and your request may be postponed until the next available Child Dedication Celebration.
Registration is currently available for all of the Child Dedication dates listed above.
- Choose a date to participate in Child Dedication Celebration.
- Choose a date for the one-hour, one-time Legacy Class. If you have previously attended a Legacy Class for another child’s dedication, there's no need to attend again. Just choose “Previously Attended” when you register.
- Upload two pictures of your child. If dedicating more than one child, a photo including ALL children being dedicated is required. These pictures will be used for a special gift given to your family and for the media slide being used during the dedication service.
Include a prayer of blessing for your child. However, you might prefer to wait until after the Legacy Class to submit your prayer, if you haven't taken the class before.
