Children are a gift from God! Here at Curtis we celebrate that gift by coming alongside of parents with Biblical resources that equip them to be the best parents they can be. Parenting classes are provided throughout the year to teach, train, equip, and support parents to raise children who reflect Jesus. Upon completion of these classes, we offer a Parent/Child Dedication service. This is a special time in our church for parents to gather with family and friends, and make a public commitment to raise their child in a Christ-centered home. During the scheduled Worship Service, parents will have an opportunity, along with other families, to stand before the church and celebrate the gift of your child.
There will be a specific time in the Worship Service when parents make a public commitment before the congregation and then we as a church commit to support these parents as they raise their children to know, love, and follow Jesus Christ.
Following the dedication service, you will be provided with a complimentary family photograph. A DVD of the dedication may also be ordered.
If you wish to participate in a Parent/Child Dedication, we ask that you fill out this form.
