Milestones & Moments

Baby/Child and Parent Dedications

All ages

Dedications are a symbolic way for parents to affirm their call to raise children with an understanding that they are loved by God and can share Christ’s love with all. During our 11:00am worship, the people of our faith community covenant with your family to love, pray and support you and your children. Dedications are held monthly with the exceptions of July, October and during Lent.

Blessing of the Backpacks

At the beginning of each school year, we pray for our students, teachers, and administrators. Our Blessing of the Backpacks and backpack tags are a reminder of the love carried with each child from God and the prayers from their church. Be loved. Be kind. Be you.
