Why Baby Dedication?

Baby dedication is a ceremony that is a part of our Sunday morning gathering on June 4th.  The purpose of Baby Dedication is for parents to dedicate their children to the Lord.  Each parent makes a public commitment to disciple their children to know and love God with their heart, soul, mind and strength.  The congregation also makes a commitment to assist those parents on that journey.

Parent Orientation

Parent orientation is June 14th, in the kitchen at 9AM at the Grace Extension Center.  The purpose of the orientation is to make sure we have digital photos and correct spelling of the child's name.  We cover all the details for what will take place during the worship gathering.  Parents bring their homework assignments with them.  Finally, parents will have a chance to meet our children's directors and learn how our children's ministry can assist parents in the discipling of their children for the glory of God.
