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.
