Why We Partner with Parents.
Parenting is among life’s greatest adventures. However, the journey is exhausting, messy, and at times downright overwhelming. It sounds daunting, right? The process of raising children is one that requires selflessness and humility unlike anything else in life. For that reason, we are committed to partnering with moms and dads to provide both guidance and on-going support at every stage of the process.
What is a Parent Dedication?
Before attending a Baby Dedication, each parent or guardian is required to attend a one-hour course to learn what to expect on dedication day, as well as what the dedication commitment entails.
When is Parent Dedication?
Does my child have to be a newborn?
Not at all! We understand that you may be new to Ben Davis Christian Church – and perhaps church in general! No matter where you are in your journey, if you have a child of any age, it’s not too late to commit to raising them in a gospel-centered home.
Is membership required to participate?
We don’t require membership for participation in a Parent Dedication. However, Parent Dedication is a commitment parents are making to raise their child in a God-honoring home. Therefore, church participation and membership will be an important part of upholding that commitment. We encourage every parent to consider covenanting to our church in membership!
Are there any age requirements for participation?
Our Parent Dedication ceremony is designed for the parents of young children. Most parents who participate are celebrating a newborn or preschool-age child. However, if you have any questions or concerns about your current situation, our team would be more than happy to talk with you! Contact our Kids Ministry team today to learn more.
