Information Concerning Baby Dedications at

Goshen


Congratulations on your desire to dedicate your child to the Lord! Our church is eager to assist you in this important matter. Baby Dedication ceremonies are usually conducted on the 2nd & 4th Sabbath of each month.


Due to the spiritual nature of the questions asked during the Baby Dedication Ceremony, it is helpful for the Pastoral Team to understand the marital and living situation of both parents. Therefore, an appointment with Pastor Fraser or Pastor Adams is essential. Such a meeting is also a time to discuss the meaning of this event, and how a baby dedication is different than an infant baptism.


Once your application is received in the office, someone from the team will call you to schedule an appointment with you. After a face-to-face meeting, they will let the office know and the dedication will be confirmed.


During the morning worship service, one pew will be reserved for each family having a baby dedicated. At the appropriate time in the worship experience, Pastor Fraser or Pastor Adams will invite parents, family, godparents and the child being dedicated to come to the front of the church to begin the Baby Dedication Ceremony. At the conclusion of the ceremony, a Certificate of Dedication will be presented to the parents.
