At ccdelco, we dedicate children to the Lord rather than baptizing them. Dedicating your children declares your intent to set them apart for the Lord's service and to raise them in His ways. By doing this publicly, the parents gain the partnership of the congregation in this great mission.
As part of the dedication process, parents must attend a Child Dedication Orientation, where we'll celebrate together this important milestone in your child's life, share the whys of dedication, and help you build a support system for your child and family. You will receive additional resources and information about this orientation upon receipt of you Child Dedication Request.
New families are also strongly encouraged to attend a JKids Parent Orientation, where you'll learn more about our children and family programs at ccdelco. Please plan to attend the next Parent Orientation, scheduled at the start of our Fall and Spring semesters. (Check out our calendar of events to see when our next Orientation will be).
If you are interested in dedicating your child, please submit the following request form. Before starting the form, you should have your desired date and an alternate date ready, as the form requires both. We'll contact you shortly after receiving your request to confirm the date.
