On November 20, a Dedication of Parents and Children will take place during our 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Sunday services.
The Child Dedication Ceremony is a time for celebrating the birth or adoption of a child in a ceremony of naming and dedication. It is a time for welcoming our children into the world, into the family, and into the church community. It is a time for acknowledging that each child’s life is sacred and hold that truth in the light of our faith.
This simple ceremony is related to the Christian “baptism” or “christening,” though the meanings we attach to it are significantly different. Please read our UU Child Dedication Brochure for a full description.
The ceremony is a public declaration by the parents to dedicate themselves to faithfully nurture and support their children. The congregation recognizes your child’s original blessing, and we dedicate ourselves to nurturing your child and you. Because of the promises our congregation makes to the family during the ceremony, child dedications are available only to members of the church.
If you are interested in having your child dedicated on November 20, fill out this online form by Sunday, November 13 or email Rev. Kimberlee at firstname.lastname@example.org
