If you have welcomed a new baby into your family, please let us know by submitting your information via our Report a Birth Form.
Baby dedication is an act of faith on the part of parents who have a personal relationship with Christ to publicly declare their intention to raise their child according to the Scriptures. During the dedication service, our assistant pastor prays for the child and the parents; however, it is much more significant than a one-time ceremony. Dedication signifies a lifelong commitment by the parents that they will yield their lives to the Lord and seek His guidance in raising their child to know and serve Him. We consider it an honor and privilege to partner with you and your family as you dedicate and disciple your child.
Prior to each service, a photographer will take a family portrait of you and your baby with the pastor. We provide a picture along with the dedication certificate as a keepsake. We do not videotape or take photos of the actual dedication service. However, you are welcome to have a friend or family member take video or pictures for you during the service.
To allow families quick and easy access to the stage, reserved seating will only be designated for immediate family members. Extended family members may want to arrive early to access additional seating within the church sanctuary.
If you are interested in making reservations to dedicate your child, please contact Kim Garn at firstname.lastname@example.org or 704-295-6876. Please be aware that dedication services fill up quickly and space is limited. It is our desire to accommodate families as much as possible; however, we will choose the final date and service time you will dedicate.
If it is your first time dedicating a child at Central Church, a mandatory parent meeting will be held on the Wednesday evening prior to the dedication date. The meeting will address the dedication details, the biblical foundation for dedication, and answer any questions you have.
Baby dedication services are tentatively scheduled for the following dates in 2017:
