“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” – Proverbs 22:6

What is Child Dedication?

This is an opportunity to publicly express our commitment to raising our child(ren) with God’s guidance and submitting ourselves to His will. It’s a time to invite family and friends to support you as you dedicate your child(ren) to the Lord. Child Dedications are held during services in the fall and the spring.

Before dedicating your child, we ask parents to attend a Child Dedication Class. During the class, we walk through what child dedication means, why parents make this commitment, and how COMMUNITY is here to partner with them.

Child dedications are held in the Spring and late Fall. For information about dedicating your child, please contact your Kids’ City director.
