When a new life begins, we celebrate it with a child dedication. It is where we bless the child and the parents as they grow together as a family and in their relationships with God. Scripture reminds us how dear children are to the heart of God in Mark chapter 10, where Jesus says, "Let the little children come to me, do not hinder them, because the Kingdom of God is theirs." And he took them in hand and laid their hands on them and blessed them.
Receiving a new child is the start of a new adventure and we want to make sure that new parents understand that they have the full support of their church family as they begin their journey!
The dates for Child dedication in 2020 are:
Before the child dedication, the parents will be invited to a small gathering with several of the pastors. They will use the time to get to know each other better, review the children’s dedication program, and have a short talk about life and faith for children, as well as what KATSJ has to offer, with the Children’s Pastor. Mandatory Info will be held the week within the Child dedications.
