Child Dedication

Child Dedication

Child Dedication is an opportunity for parents to acknowledge their child as a precious trust from God and to declare, in front of friends and family, their intention to be fully devoted followers of Christ and to parent in such a way that their child will be lead towards a relationship with Jesus.To encourage parents at the start of this amazing journey, we offer Child Dedication two to three times a year. Child Dedication is a three part process that includes:

  • An application and interview to help you determine if child dedication is the next best step for your family

  • Two class sessions to grow in your understanding of child dedication and prepare for the ceremony

  • The Dedication Ceremony which takes place the week following the completion of the class

In the class we will cover:

  • The text God's Grand Vision for the Home (book will be provided)

  • Biblical teaching on what it truly means to dedicate your child to God

  • Biblical instruction on parenting and setting your home apart for the Lord

  • Highlight the joy that it is to share the love of God with your child

We encourage families to invite close friends, family and godparents to participate in the Dedication Service as part of their support and accountability team. More information about the service is given during the class, but it's about an hour long and takes place on Sunday afternoon.

Classes are held 2 to 3 times a year and information about those will be on the website and in CTK Life. The first step is to complete a Dedication Questionnaire. After that we will contact you before the next class begins. Please contact Jayne Doll if you have any other questions.
