PARENT & CHILD DEDICATION WORKSHOP
This workshop disciples parents in the most foundational decision of Christian parenting: giving your child away to Jesus Christ. This decision is the precursor to raising one’s child in the training and instruction of the Lord. The workshop welcomes parents of children aged birth-high school and is a pre-requisite for our Sunday morning parent child dedication ceremony. During the Dedication Workshop, you will have an opportunity to choose a Worship Service time where you will make the dedication of your child public and be prayed over by the church.

On the Go Devotions

Parent and Child Dedication Workshops
The Workshop is a time for parents to learn how to actually follow Jesus in every circumstance of every day and disciple children of all ages to do the same.  There is no age limit or expiration date for a parent to dedicate their child(ren) to the Lord and trust that God's will for the life of their child is better than any hopes and dreams we could ever have for them.  We invite parents of preschool, elementary, middle school, and high school children to participate. During the Dedication Workshop, you will have an opportunity to choose a Worship Service time where you will make the dedication of your child public and be prayed over by the church. If you would like to attend a Dedication Workshop, please click the link below to fill out the form below and select which workshop you would like to attend.  Lunch & Childcare will be provided.
