Baby Dedication classes are now available for registration. For more information on Baby Dedication and how to register for a class, please click the link below.
The purpose of dedication is to allow Christian parents to make a formal commitment before family, congregation, and God that they choose to raise their children in a Christian home. We dedicate children 1 Sunday (usually the 3rd Sunday) several times a year.
The requirements to dedicate your child are:
- The child is under the age of 6
- You are a Christian parent
- You have attended a Cathedral of Faith weekend service
- Your child has attended a COF Kidz nursery or Sunday school class
- Parents have attended a Baby Dedication Class
How do I make arrangements to dedicate my child?

Who do we dedicate?
Children-Birth through 5 years old
How much does it cost to dedicate a child?
$30. This includes: a dedication DVD, a children’s Bible, a special photo of your child taken during his/her dedication, and a parenting message from Pastor Ken. (This is also what holds your child’s spot as we can only dedicate up to 12 children per dedication). The $30 covers the first child; each additional sibling is $10 there after. If you decide to change your dedication date less than 6 weeks before the dedication, you will have to re-sign up, which would require a new contribution.
Why don’t we baptize?
We believe baptism is a choice to follow Jesus and must be made by the person being baptized. Very young children do not yet make life choices.
Why dedicate a child?
It is an opportunity for Christian parents to bring their young children before God and commit themselves to providing a Christian home and training for these children so that when they are mature enough to make decisions they will choose God and salvation through Jesus. It is actually a parents’ commitment to God, understanding their responsibility to their children before God.
When do we dedicate children?
We dedicate children several times a year after the 11:45 a.m. service in the Chapel. Once you attend a class, you will be given dates of upcoming dedications and the opportunity to register for those times.
Can we have others accompany us on stage?
We allow up to a max of 4 additional adults to accompany you on stage during your child’s dedication. These 4 people are not required but may be Grandparents, Godparents, and/or other family or close friends. Please note, children under the age of 12 cannot be one of the additional 4 people on stage.
