Baby D
A Baby Dedication Celebration
Virtual Orientation | November 7 | 6:30pm
Event | November 14 | 12:45pm – doors open at 12:30pm
This is a special time where parents dedicate their child(ren) (age birth to 2 years) to God with the support of family and close friends. This celebration is purposefully set aside from other church events to help families focus on the commitment they are making to raise their children to know and follow God. It's a memorable event that includes family, friends, and a family photo area. PARENTS: To prepare for the event, parents are required to attend a short Virtual Parent Orientation (15 – 20 minutes) and complete homework beforehand. No worries, you'll want to do this homework. You’ll also need to submit a candid photo of your child(ren) which will be shown during worship services as well as during the Baby D event. You can sign up for the required orientation by November 5 and download homework

What to expect on campus Sunday.

  • Face coverings are no longer required but are welcomed.
  • At this time, our auditorium seating is STILL reduced to allow for social distancing during worship for those who may have underlying health concerns or are more comfortable having a little more space at this time.

Even with all the recent updates and changes, we know that things will continue to change, and we anticipate adapting as needed. We will always keep you updated with the latest information. Our hope is that we will all continue to extend grace and love to those around us. No matter the circumstances, we can't wait to worship with you on Sunday!
