Next Child Dedication: May 21st, 2023
As a parent, you are the most influential person in your child's life. As a church, we want to come beside you, and partner with you in this journey as you lead your child to become a fully engaged follower of Jesus! During the Child Dedication service, you will have the opportunity to make a commitment before the Lord and your Next Level Church family to raise your child according to God's Word and to model what following Jesus looks like.
Psalm 127:3 says, “Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.” As well as celebrating your gift from God during the Child Dedication service, parents promise before God, their family, and the church to raise their child in a God-honoring way. Because parents are the primary spiritual role models for their children, we ask that parents commit to the following before dedicating their child:
- Parent(s) have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
- Parent(s) are regular attenders of Next Level Church and are following Jesus in their own life.
- Parent(s) agree with our church’s beliefs and core values, which can be found in our “What We Believe” statement.
- Parent(s) commit to modeling purity and to lead by example in matters of faith and conduct. That means living a life of sexual purity according to God's standards.
Child Dedication occurs twice a year during our weekend services. Sign up below and your Location Kids Director will reach out to you with information about the required Child Dedication Orientation.
No. We believe that a child must be old enough to understand what it means to put their faith in Jesus Christ before they can be baptized. This event is an opportunity for parents to publicly declare they want to raise their child to develop their own relationship with Jesus Christ. Child dedication is for newborns through 5 year olds.
Please plan on attending the required Child Dedication Orientation the weekend before the Dedication service. Then, invite your friends and family to attend this milestone event!
We do ask that families call Next Level Church home, because in dedicating your child to God, you are committing to partner with God and the Church to raise your child to know and follow Jesus. As your church family, we are here to partner with you and provide support, community and resources along your journey as parents!
