Child Dedication

Sign Up to Have Your Child Dedicated!

Child Dedication

Once a year, we hold our annual Child Dedication service.  It's a blessing to have so many growing families in our church and it's important that we come alongside and help them in raising their children to love Christ and live for Him.

We are excited and honored that you have chosen to take this step with your family at Northbend. If your child is in Kindergarten or younger, sign up below to get on the list! Within a few days of signing up, you will receive a text message confirming receipt of your submission and giving you more information about dedication day!

What is Child Dedication?

Child dedication is a symbolic ceremony undertaken by parents soon after the birth of a child. This is intended to be a public statement by the parents saying that you will train your children in the Christian faith and seek to instill that faith in them. This is also a time for our entire church to come alongside you as parents and help you in your commitment to raise your children up to love Christ.

We see Biblical examples of this being done in 1 Samuel 1:11 when Hannah, a barren wife, promised to dedicate her child to God if He would give her a son. Another example we look to is found in Luke 2:22 when Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the temple after 40 days to dedicate Him to the Lord.

We don't currently have a date planned for our 2022 Child Dedication, but we will update this page and announce it at Church when we do.
