Milestone: Dedicating my Family

Our desire as a church is to help equip parents to guide their children toward loving God with their whole heart. We have strategically laid out milestones to guide you on a path of discipleship for your children which begins with “Dedicating my Family.” 

  • Key Concepts: Parents learn how to become their child’s primary disciple maker, and commit to be intentional about teaching and training their child in the ways of the Lord. 
  • Focus: Birth-Kindergarten
  • Milestone Celebration: Parent/Child Dedication

The next Dedication will be Sunday, October 18, 2020.

Parent/Child Dedication is part of the regular worship services. Families may participate in person at 9:30 or 11:00am or virtually at 9:30am .   Following the service, a meal will be provided for you to celebrate with your family at home. We look forward to celebrating with you!

Register to participate. Scroll for additional action items and details on the virtual option. 


In addition to registering for the Dedication, you will also need to do the following 3 things:

Attend the Dedicating my Family Class. Several weeks prior to the dedication, Preschool Director Rachel Bright will meet with parents to discuss the importance of Dedication. This zoom class is required prior to participating in the event.  You will be contacted after you register with specific class details. 

Write a letter to your child that will be returned to you at the service. You will give this letter to your child as they experience the milestone of salvation and are baptized.  View SAMPLE LETTER HERE.

Email 2 pictures, one of your family and one of your child, to use for the program and the video. Pictures can be black & white, color, candid or professional.  Email the pictures to Cindi at .

    NEW OPTION: Virtual Celebration at 9:30am 

    If you will be joining us virtually, tune into the online service at 9:15am. Invite special family and friends to join you at home. Your family’s picture will be presented on the screen, your family will be introduced and Pastor Alex will pray over your child. You can make this a special celebration with your family at home, just as you would if you were at church. Carmel will provide a meal for you to celebrate with your family after the service.

    If you have questions about the dedication service or need additional information about the Preschool area, please call us at 704.849.9723, opt. 1. We would love to help you in any way that we can.
