Our Child Dedication services are held once a year on Mother's Day. We have held dedication services on this Sunday for many years now, and find it to be a very special time for all families that have participated. 

The dedication of your child/ren indicates your desire to raise them to one day make a personal commitment to Jesus as their Lord and Savior. 

We at New Life Community Church believe that all children are under God's covering until they are old enough to make a decision to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior; therefore, we do not believe that it is necessary to "baptize" a child in order for them to be under God's covering. We do, however, believe that it is scriptural for parents to dedicate their children to the Lord as a symbolic gesture that they will raise them up to follow the Lord.

The dedication of your child is done during scheduled Sunday services. Parents present their child publicly before the congregation, the pastor and the Lord. 

Things to know

We request each family wanting to participate in child dedication to fill out our online form no later than one week prior to the dedication service. Click here to be taken to our form. 

This form provides important information on the child as well as service preference and a place to upload a picture to be used on screen. Once submitted, this form will be sent directly to the church office and you will be notified the week before the service that you have been placed in. We do our best to give you the preferred service. 

We encourage families to invite extended family and friends to attend this special occasion. If you need seats reserved, please contact our church office by phone after submitting your online form.
