Thank you so much for your interest in dedicating your child. True Grace Church believes that each child is a gift from God, and we are very excited you are interested in dedicating your child.

Our next Child Dedication Weekend will be in the spring depending on the Corona Virus. Please check here for updates on when we will be meeting again. 

Information: Child Dedication is an opportunity for you to make a public commitment before God, your family and our church that it is your goal to raise your child under the authority of God’s Word. You are committing before our church community your desire to live a life that honors the Lord while nurturing your child and leading him or her spiritually, through the help of the Holy Spirit. We usually think of Child

Dedications as being for younger children, but the event is open to all parents who have not made this commitment in the past, including new believers and adoptive parents.

For additional questions please email us at kids@truegrace.church

Frequently asked questions

How often does our church do Child Dedications? 

We have them twice a year. Once in the spring and in the fall during our main services.

Can a single parent dedicate their child?

Yes! We encourage single parents to dedicate themselves to raising their child within the foundation of God's Word.

What age does a child have to be to be dedicated?

At True Grace Church we don't set an age limit on dedicating your child, the average age is between 3 months and 10 years.

What if I can't attend the Family Celebration/Child Dedication Class?

If you are unable to attend this class, we welcome you to our next celebration. We can also do a private family dedication that is not in the main service. For this option please contact our kids pastor.
