Child Dedication

We are so glad that you are interested in dedicating your child at Hope!

Child Dedication is a time set aside where parents make a commitment to intentionally parent their child with an end in mind. It's a time for your family & friends to come alongside you & commit to helping you achieve your end goal for your child. Lastly, it's a time for the church to say, we'll partner with you to help your child develop into a growing follower of Jesus.

Below are the steps to take if you'd like to have your child dedicated at Hope:

Note: Child dedication is NOT infant baptism.

1) STEP 1: Listen to the parenting talks provided and complete the homework.

This is an important first step in the process because we want to inspire you to invest in the things that will matter the most to your child’s future. We want to help you get off to a great start as you parent your new baby.

2) STEP 2: Attend a Child Dedication Introduction

Once you have listened to the parenting talks and completed the homework, please email us at: dedication@hopechurchnyc.org to register for the Child Dedication Class (Parent Orientation). At this class, we will talk about parenting, share important information about our preschool environment and give you some of the last “need to knows” about our Child Dedication during the Service.

Class Date: TBD 2017 Class will be announced soon

 

3) STEP 3: Let’s celebrate!

We'll be dedicating your child with family and friends during our Sunday Worship Gathering, and we'll also have some cake to follow the service.  Information is below on our next Child Dedication!
