Child Dedication & Baptism

Click here for an overview on the details of dedicating your child to the Lord.

CHILD DEDICATION 

Throughout the year, we offer opportunity for young children to be dedication to God by their families. We typically have child dedication services two times a year, near Mother's Day and near Thanksgiving Weekend. The dedication ceremony is a symbolic way for parents to offer the child to God and recognize that as parents, they are stewards of the child's life. It also acknowledges the parent's intent to raise the child in a God-honoring manner.

As a part of this dedication, you as a parent commit to: 

  1. Publicly affirm your personal faith in Christ as renew your dedication to Him and His Word. 
  2. Pray for God's direction in your lives and in the lives of your children 
  3. Faithfully participate in a Christian community as a family
  4. Teach your children the Truths of God's word 
  5. Anticipate and seek to lead your children to a personal faith in Christ 

The next child dedication weekend is November 25 & 26

BAPTISMS FOR CHILDREN

Children who are ready to take the next step in their faith through baptism are invited to attend the Children's Ministries Baptism Class with their parents
and be baptized at one of our quarterly Family Worship Services. 

Each quarter, Children's Ministries hosts a baptism class a few weeks before the next Family Worship Service. Children in upper elementary grads, along with their parents, are invited to attend the class that teaches the fundamentals of the Christian faith and baptism as practiced here here at Calvary. Once the child, parent's and leaders agree the child has a clear understanding of it's meaning and is ready, they are invited to be baptized at the next Family Worship Service. 

Parents attend the Children's Ministries Baptism class in community with their child to participate in the discussion about baptism and understanding the declaration and commitment they are making. 

For more information on baptism for children or to sign-up to attend one of the classes, contact Pastor Nate Travis at natet@calvarycc.org or 818.575.2258
