County Line Baby Dedication Ceremony
You have been entrusted to raise this precious child, and we look forward to partnering with you as you begin the journey. We hold two Dedication Ceremonies per year, in the spring and the fall. These are held on weekends, separately from our worship services. This gives us time for a meaningful commitment before God and a celebration with your family and friends.
If you would like to participate, fill out the enrollment form below to reserve your spot for the next ceremony, as spots fill quickly. Then follow the three simple steps below to prepare for this meaningful commitment.Baby Dedication Enrollment Form
Watch these three short videos with your spouse and fill out the attached worksheet. (You will need that in Step 2.) These are talks from our pastors and nursery director with helpful instruction and encouragement as we begin this journey together in the life of your child.

Make an appointment to meet with Mary Ellen Rayle, our Children’s Ministry Pastor. We will talk about your homework assignments and make plans for what each of us will say and do at the observance. In addition, please send 8-10 digital photos of the baby and your family to Carissa Piano. These will be used at the observance and shared with the congregation. Send out the invitations we will provide to your family and friends.
The big day! We will participate in the ceremony and celebration with six to eight other families. Refreshments will be served. You will present your child, light a candle and share your blessing for them. Each child will be dedicated individually. You will be given certificates and a keepsake candle. Don’t forget to bring your cameras!
