Child Dedications

Our next opportunity for Child Dedication will be held at ALL CAMPUSES on August 29 during all services.

Parents who dedicate a child are making a promise to the Lord before the church congregation to do everything within their power to raise the child in a godly way — prayerfully — until he or she can make a decision on his or her own to follow God.

Registration deadline is August 13.
