Baby Dedication Celebration

Baby Dedication Celebration

At The Ridge, we recognize the importance of making a commitment to raise your child to know and love God.

Baby Dedication with The Ridge is a time for you, as parents, to share with the church your commitment to lead your children into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. It’s designed as a way for parents to publicly profess and celebrate their intent to raise their children in Christ.

Dedicating your child to God is much more than just an event. It is an opportunity for you to take some time at the beginning of your journey as a parent to really think about what will matter the most in the life of your child; to really talk together and decide what you value; and to decide what you can do today in order to have the greatest impact on your child’s future.

You will be the greatest influence in your child’s life. We want to be your biggest fan and trusted guide.

Please click [HERE] to register for Baby Dedication. Once you have registered for Baby Dedication, you will receive a Baby Dedication packet in the mail. Also, you will receive an email to register for a Baby Dedication Gathering.

“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Deuteronomy 6:4-7
