Parent Child Dedication

Raising a child is an important and exciting responsibility. Through Parent Child Dedication, parents can declare before family and friends their commitment to raise their young child in a Christ-centered home. For older kids, teenagers and adults, Elmbrook Church practices believers’ baptism which allows them to declare their own personal decision to follow Jesus Christ.

Dedication is…

  • An act which follows the Biblical examples in 1 Samuel 1:24-2:10 & Luke 2:21-25.
  • A parent’s commitment, not an indication, that a child has made a decision to follow Christ.
  • A time for friends, family and the church to commit to walk alongside you, as you point your child to Christ.


  • The hour-long ceremony will be held in the Chapel, followed by a reception with light refreshments.
  • The ceremony will include a slideshow of the children being dedicated.
  • Feel free to invite anyone you’d like to be part of your special day. You can dress as fancy or as simple as you’d like, there is not a specific dress code for this celebration. 
  • There are 3 hours of class time. If a class is missed, a make-up class will be arranged before the next scheduled class.
  • Kids Ministry is available if you’d like your child to attend a Nursery classroom while you attend class.
  • If you have any questions, contact Andrea
