Infant Dedication

 

For infants, we practice a service of ‘dedication’ which is a time when the baby (or toddler) is brought before the church family by their family (immediate and extended, if desired).  The child is then anointed with oil .  The pastor prays for God’s blessing on the child as well as asking the parents, family and church body to dedicate themselves to helping this little one grow in their faith of Jesus Christ. Dedications happen on an ‘as requested’ basis and are prearranged through the church office for scheduling purposes.
