Child Dedication

At the heart of dedicating a child is the dedication of mom and dad, because God has gifted you with this marvelous gift of life.

What is Child Dedication?
We celebrate this milestone with our church family two times a year, in the spring and fall. A Child Dedication is a ceremony in which parents who are following Christ, and sometimes entire families, make a commitment before the Lord to raise that child according to God’s Word and God’s ways. We also take special care and preparation to make sure this is a meaningful, God-centered experience for your family. Child Dedication is not limited to infants, but is open to any child who has not yet made the decision to be baptized.

What about Baptism?
At The Crossing, Child Dedication does not involve baptism.  We believe baptism is a decision an individual makes after they have chosen to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, repented of their sin and then choose to be baptized as a public confession and profession that they are following Christ. We do not practice child baptism until an individual is old enough to articulate those steps.
We at The Crossing want to partner with you on this parenting journey as you guide your child in building their spiritual foundation.  We pray that God will give you great wisdom and that your home will be filled with the love of Jesus.

Our next Child Dedication is happening on November 19th, 2022 at The Crossing Windmill and November 20th, 2022 at The Crossing Midtown.
