Isn't parenting wonder-full? And also a little . . . exhausting, exhilarating, messy, lovely, overwhelming, amazing?
BabyD is a Sunday morning dedication event that sets up a partnership between the church and the family — a partnership that will ease anxieties, encourage, resource, and ultimately lead to a child developing a faith of their very own.
The Next Baby D
MARCH 17, 2019 During the 9:15am and 11:15am Gatherings
Baby D Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to do between now and the day of the celebration?
Please make sure you have filled out the Baby Dedication Form.
What if my child isn't a baby anymore?
If your child is no longer a "baby" but you would still like to have the child dedicated that is okay! Most families will dedicate up to 2 years old.
The day of the celebration . . .
What time should we arrive?
Please arrive 20 min before the gathering you are attending starts. (8:55am and 10:55am)
What should we wear?
Whatever you and your little one will feel most comfortable in! Some people dress casually in jeans, while others wear more formal attire.
Is this an infant baptism?
No. We believe that a child must be old enough to understand what it means to put their faith in Jesus Christ before they can be baptized. This event is an opportunity for you as parents to publicly declare that you want to raise your child to develop their own relationship with Jesus Christ.
I can barely get my child to sit still long enough to get them dressed. How will they survive the entire celebration day event?
Your child will make noise during the celebration day event. But that’s okay, because so will everyone else’s! The event will only take 15 minutes at the beginning of the service. You will then have the opportunity to take your baby to Renokids if you choose to do so.
What can I expect on the day of the celebration?
Your family will be brought to the front of the church for a time of prayer and dedication. We will have a gift for you and your child. Pastor Joey will give a charge to the parents and our church to love, encourage, and be present in the life or your child.
