When it comes to raising our kids, the list of responsibilities is long. But nothing we do is more important than pointing them toward Jesus. Child dedication at CTK is about helping you demonstrate your desire and commitment to do just that. Join other families with young children our class that will prepare you to dedicate your child to God — and yourself to godly parenting.
After completing the class and dedicating yourself to godly parenting there will be a separate dedication ceremony. There your friends and family will celebrate with you and pledge their support in your commitment to your child.
For more information, please complete this child dedication interest form.
Baptism is a significant way to publicly declare our decision to trust Jesus and follow him. It's a significant marker in a believer's life that can help affirm that step of faith. If your child wants to be baptized, email Pastor Duane. Your child will be asked to write out their story of how they chose to follow Jesus and how they are living their live for him. Once we receive your child's testimony, you and your child will meet with a children's leader to prepare for this significant event.
The next Baptism class will be on Sunday, October 8th at 11:15 AM in Room 210. Parents will need to accompany their child to class, but if you are not able to join your child please let Pastor Duane know.
Moms—the power of prayer over whatever your child might be going through can be even more hopeful when praying with other moms. Join us on any or every Wednesday morning to pray for your children, their teachers, and our schools, using the promises in God’s word. Replace fears with hope, and connection with other moms to find encouragement and support.
No need to sign up, just show up any Wednesday at 9:30AM in Room 214 (Prayer Room).
For more information, email Sydel (360-733-1337).
