At Four Corners Church, we believe children are a gift from God, and we’re excited that you are interested in having your child dedicated. Dedication acknowledges that God chose to send your specific child into a family that follows Jesus.
For the parents who bring children to be dedicated, it is a public declaration that you will do everything in your power to positively impact your child's spiritual development.
For children, dedication acknowledges that God has a plan and purpose that takes precedent over the parents’ (or anyone else’s) plan for them. When your child reaches an age of understanding, they will need to make a personal choice to invite Jesus into their life.
IS THIS A BAPTISM?
No. We believe that a child should be old enough to understand what it means to put their faith in Jesus Christ before they can be baptized. Child dedication is an opportunity for you, as parents, to publicly declare your dedication to raising your child in the ways of God so that they may develop their own relationship with Jesus.
IS THE DEDICATION FOR INFANTS ONLY?
Not at all! We understand that you may want to dedicate your older children at the same time; that’s perfect!
WHO CAN JOIN THE CELEBRATION?
You are welcome to invite friends and family to join the celebration!
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT THE DEDICATION CEREMONY?
The event should last no longer than an hour and a half and will include a light lunch, the dedication ceremony, an opportunity for photos, and time for celebration.
WHAT IF I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?
No worries. We are here to answer all of your questions. Just send an email to Kids@4CornersChurch.com and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
