At Living Faith, we believe parents have a sacred trust to do all they can to live as a godly example and see their children become disciples of Jesus Christ.

Because of this, we offer new parents who attend Living Faith the opportunity to dedicate their children to the Lord during a regular worship service.  

Based on Hannah’s dedication of Samuel in 1 Samuel 1:21-28, the dedication takes place during one of our regular worship services in front of the congregation. During the ceremony, parents are asked to commit themselves to being a Christian example and seeing their children become followers of Christ. Then, the pastor and congregation pray a blessing over each child and family. Because we believe God’s grace is received by faith alone in Jesus Christ, we do not baptize infants or young children at Living Faith.  

For Parents who wish to dedicate their child:

  • The next dedication will be held on Sunday, May 19th, 2024.  

Dedication requirements include:

  • The child being dedicated must be 24 months old or younger.
  • Parent(s) must be believers.
  • Parent(s) must have regular attendance at LFCC for 3 months prior to the dedication.
  • Parent(s) must make a commitment to regularly attend Living Faith services and involve their child in events and Christian educational classes at Living Faith.
  • Parent(s) must attend the class prior to the dedication
  • Parent(s) must each submit a story of how they came to faith by email to prior to the first class.
