What you can expect at the celebration
We will reserve a table (seats 10) for your family and close friends.
• We ask that the only other young children are the siblings of the new baby. This will ensure that you can focus on this special event with no distractions.
• You will have an opportunity to share what you’ve decided from your homework assignment in STEP 1.
• We will lead you in a prayer of dedication.
• You will have time to eat cake and take pictures with your family.
• We will have a professional photographer to take your picture with your child.
• The event will last about an hour.

Requirements
• BabyD is so much more than an event. You must complete STEP 1 and STEP 2 before your BabyD registration is confirmed.
• You must be a member of a community group, or serving on a volunteer team to participate in the BabyD Celebration.
• There is no time limit to completing STEP 1.
• The only time limit you need to consider is that your child must be under two years of age to participate in the Baby Dedication Celebration.
• Space is limited for BabyD and we know this event will fill up quickly. This event will be offered twice a year. It is very likely that the next available opening could be 6 months from the time that you sign up.

Not Infant Baptism
This event is not infant baptism. We believe that when people are old enough to understand what it means to put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, they should have the opportunity to make that choice for themselves. A preschooler is not able to understand sin, forgiveness, the sacrifice our Savior made for us, and what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This event is about your commitment as a parent to lead your child into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, so that as he gets older, you are able to guide him and to help him understand what that means.
