Child Dedication Nov 19, 2023
November 19, 2023 | 9:00 am & 11:00 am
On November 19, 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 holding 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 website link for a full description.
The ceremony is a public declaration by parents dedicating themselves to faithfully nurturing and supporting 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.
