Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect from the Parent Dedication Class on Monday night?
What can I expect from the Parent Dedication Celebration on Sunday?
It’s a morning of celebration with prayer, fellowship, and cupcakes. During each service the church will pray for the Parent Dedication families. In between services there will be a reception for families inside the garage where you can celebrate with your family and friends by eating cupcakes and taking pictures.
Is this infant baptism?
No. Our church believes that baptism is an outward sign of an inward decision to follow Jesus. We believe baptism is a decision that is made by the individual and not by the parents. However, Parent Dedication is a decision made by the parents. It’s when parents make a commitment to grow in their relationship with Jesus and commit to intentionally parent their child to do the same.
I can’t attend the Parent Dedication Class. Can I still attend the Parent Dedication Celebration?
The Parent Dedication Class is an integral part of equipping you and partnering with you to help your child develop into a growing follower of Jesus. If you can’t attend the Parent Dedication Class, we would encourage you to attend another Parent Dedication Class before you attend the Parent Dedication Celebration. We offer Parent Dedication several times a year in an effort to provide you an option that work bests with your schedule.
Do both parents need to attend the Parent Dedication Class?
We encourage both parents to attend the class since both parent will participate in raising the child. If a spouse is unable to attend, please let us know so we can provide guidance on how your spouse can participate in the dedication experience with you.
Can a single parent participate in Parent Dedication?
Absolutely! It’s our desire to do all we can to equip and support you in your commitment to raise your child in a Christ-centered home. We encourage you to discuss Parent Dedication with your ex-spouse. We realize this isn’t always possible, but ideally both parents would still commit to raise their child to be a follower of Jesus. Please bring a relative or close friend to attend the class with you.
