Baby dedication is a public commitment of your children to the Lord and a promise to raise him or her to follow after Jesus.  We recognize that children are a blessing from God, each with a unique purpose in our families, this world and in His Kingdom and we want to celebrate that with you!

How does Baby Dedication work?  Well, you get all dolled up and bring that beautiful bundle with you to worship.  At a special time during the service we will bring all of the families on stage and introduce your baby and family.  Then we will ask you a series of questions in front of the church body:

  • Do you acknowledge that your child is a gift and a trust from God, and give thanks for this blessing?

  • Will you pray for your child’s salvation and will you set a Godly example for them in prayer, service and works so that they might see what it means to love and live for Jesus?

  • Do you, in this moment, present your child before God, surrendering to His perfect plan for his or her life?

You will answer with "I do" along with the other parents and then one of our pastors will pray a blessing over you and your child(ren).  Simple and short but very sweet.

If you have any questions, we'd love to hear from you.  Email Holly@thecrossroads.church
