Here at Elim Chapel, we perform baptisms when a person is old enough to make their own decision to follow God. For babies and children, we offer a Dedication service.
This is a chance for you as parents to commit to raising your child in a way that pleases God. When you ask the question “Who do I want my child to become?”, you begin to place more value on teaching them the things that will shape their character and their relationship with their Heavenly Father. Ultimately, who they are will shape everything they do. It will determine what kind of athlete they become. It will shape how they handle success or failure. It will impact the quality of their relationships, and ultimately, it will determine the kind of husband or wife and father or mother they will one day become. Character shapes everything.
Below is an outline of the dedication celebration we would provide you with if you are interested in dedicating your baby / child.
Baby / Child Dedication Celebration
STEP 1) LISTEN TO THE PARENTING TALKS PROVIDED AND COMPLETE THE HOMEWORK.
This is an important first step in the process because we want to inspire you to invest in the things that will matter the most to your child’s future. We want to help you get off to a great start as you parent your new baby / child.
STEP 2) MEET WITH FAMILY PASTOR JUSTINA HAMMILL.
Once you have listened to the parenting talks and completed the homework, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up an appointment for you with Pastor Justina.
At this meeting, she will share important information about our preschool environment and give you some of the last “need to knows” about our Baby / Child Dedication Celebration Event.
STEP 3) LET’S CELEBRATE!
That’s right! The last step in the process is to attend our Baby / Child Dedication Celebration Event. We are planning a meaningful and memorable celebration for you and your family. You will learn the specific details concerning this event at the meeting with Pastor Justina. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact her at email@example.com
You will be the greatest influence in your child’s life. As your church, we want to be your biggest fan and trusted guide. We look forward to celebrating this special day with you.
