Parent Child DedicationThe Parent Child Dedication service is for parents to commit themselves to raising their children in a Christian home through promises and sincere intentions brought before God, one another and the entire congregation. During this service, parents are asking God’s help, strength, guidance, and provision in raising their children so that one day they will choose to believe in Him on their own. These services are offered in the spring and fall at each campus.
FAQ'sWhy have a Parent & Child Dedication Service at Mountain?
A Parent and Child Dedication service invites us to mark an important passage in the life of a young family – the birth of a child. This service reminds us of the responsibilities and privileges involved in Christian parenting.
A Parent and Child Dedication service helps us remember that raising children to love God is a matter of stewardship. Our children are not our possessions, but rather, they are God’s children. These special services help us to thank God for children, and promise to surrender our children back to God.
A Parent and Child Dedication service is a joyous occasion in which we celebrate what God has done. With joy we bring our children and dedicate ourselves to raising them to find joy in the Lord.Who should participate?

No. Baptism in the New Testament is part of the conscious decision a person makes in response to hearing the good news of Jesus Christ, to believe in Jesus Christ as the son of God & confess it, the decision to turn away from living that dishonors God, the decision to die to oneself and be raised to new life in Christ, and the desire to receive forgiveness of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit. Because we recognize that an infant is incapable of making these decisions and expressing these desires, we do not baptize them. In this service we are asking God’s help, strength, guidance, and provision in raising our children to the point where one day they will choose to believe in him of their own volition, having come to their own faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, and then submit to be baptized.
