Child Dedications

"But Jesus called them to him, saying, 'Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them;
for to such belongs the kingdom of God." 
Luke 18:16

We believe that children are a gift from God, and we want to love them as Jesus did!
A dedication is a joyful time when parents acknowledge God's incredible blessing of children as a gift from God (Psalm 127:3).
It is a public commitment parents make before God, their family and their church, expressing publicly the desire to lead and spiritually nurture their children to love God and love others.

Child Dedication Class

Two weeks prior to each dedication date, Grace offers a one-hour class to give you some specifics about the day of your child's dedication, as well as some how-tos for grace-filled parenting. Although not mandatory, we highly recommend attending the class!

Sunday Child Dedication
At the service you choose, a ministry staff member will pray with you and your family on the platform followed by Pastor Jonathan Schaeffer (in the Worship Center) or Pastor Shawn Brennan (in the Venue) leading the church family in prayer for all the children being dedicated at that service. If there is a specific ministry staff member you'd like to request for your family's prayer partner, you may do so when you complete the sign-up form. If there is only one family dedicating in one of our services, either Pastor Jonathan or Pastor Shawn will pray with them.
