Baby Dedications

Then they brought little children to Him... And He took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them

Mark 10:13,16

Why Do We Do
Baby Dedications?

At Athey Creek, we have the opporĀ­tuĀ­niĀ­ty to join with parĀ­ents of new babies in prayer and dedĀ­iĀ­cate their chilĀ­dren to the Lord.

We also encourĀ­age our conĀ­greĀ­gaĀ­tion to conĀ­tinĀ­ue to pray for these chilĀ­dren and supĀ­port the parĀ­ents as they grow. 

In 1 Samuel 1, HanĀ­nah promised to dedĀ­iĀ­cate her son to the Lord when He blessed her with a child (1 Samuel 1:11). In the New TesĀ­taĀ­ment, Joseph and Mary took baby Jesus to the temĀ­ple for dedĀ­iĀ­caĀ­tion (Luke 2:22). Although we do not think this is someĀ­thing a famĀ­iĀ­ly has to do, we believe that dedĀ­iĀ­catĀ­ing a new baby to the Lord is a very powĀ­erĀ­ful, speĀ­cial thing. We love supĀ­portĀ­ing our famĀ­iĀ­lies and encourĀ­agĀ­ing them in this way!

SchedĀ­ulĀ­ing Your Baby Dedication

We are hapĀ­py to dedĀ­iĀ­cate babies from zero to six months old in front of the conĀ­greĀ­gaĀ­tion durĀ­ing one of our weekĀ­end serĀ­vices. If your baby is six months to one year old, we would love to schedĀ­ule a time before or after a serĀ­vice for a dedĀ­iĀ­caĀ­tion with one of our pastors. 

To get startĀ­ed, fill out the form below, and one of our staff memĀ­bers will conĀ­tact you soon.
