Family Blessing Day -Dedication

Colonies Church of Christ believes children are a gift from God. Child dedication is a commitment you make before God, as parents and grandparents, to give thanks to God and raise your children according to God’s purpose. It is our heart to partner with you as your child grows and develops their own personal relationship with God. To that end, we offer a dedication service designed to help you commit to raising your child to find and follow God for all the days to come.

Colonies Church of Christ provides environments where kids can learn about God and honor Him with their lives. However, we also realize that your kids spend far more time with you than they do with us. If kids grow up loving and obeying God, it will be more a result of what you’re doing at home rather than what we’re doing at the church building.

Family Dedication is more a dedication of the parents and grandparents than of your child. As children grow, they will make their own decisions about their relationship with God. By being a part of Family Dedication, you are publicly committing to raising your child in an environment that helps them make the right choices.

Each person has to make their own choice to follow Jesus with their life. Baptism is the next step in publicly sharing that decision. We ask that children wait until they are of reasonable age to have a better understanding of baptism.

We do our best to provide great programming in safe and fun environments so your kids will want to come to church. Since we see our role as a partnership with you, we often provide kids with take home materials on what they have been learning. This way parents can continue the conversation in the car on the way home, and throughout the week. Helpful resources are provided on our website for parents to access anytime. Please reach out to any of our staff or volunteers if you have questions or want more information.
