Raising kids in a home and faith community where they can learn about their relationship with God is a calling found in Scripture, and one we don't take lightly.
This is a big responsibility for parents, but you don't have to do it alone. We want to give you opportunities to form relationships with other parents, and Children's and Family Ministries is committed to providing families with resources to help you lay a solid spiritual foundation for your children. One of the ways we do this is Baby Dedication.

A Dedication is:
Dedication is Not:
- An opportunity to support families in their desire to raise their children in a Christ-centered home.
- For the family, it is the opportunity for self-examination, determination and promise as they publicly declare their commitment to raise their child in faith.
- A chance for the whole church community to join the family in celebration and affirmation of their commitment.

Is there an age limit?For this particular event, we typically dedicate children age birth to 5 years old. We recognize that our families come from diverse church backgrounds, however, and if you have older children who you'd like to have dedicated - or perhaps have a conversation about baptism, please feel free to contact Chris Lyons at firstname.lastname@example.org.How does it work?
We do Dedications once a quarter. Once you fill out the online baby dedication registration form, a staff member will contact you to coordinate service details.
What happens the day of?
The actual event itself occurs once a quarter during Sunday services at Green Lake (when you attend your class, you will hear specific details of what to expect). The dedication itself is intended to be a brief, sacred time where the community witnesses your commitment and pastors pray for you.
Can I invite my friends/extended family?
Absolutely. This is a great way to celebrate and have friends/family affirm your commitment to raise your child in an atmosphere of love and faith.
