At New Life Family Ministries, we believe that parents are the primary nurturers of your child’s faith and the church plays a supportive role in this endeavor. Our Parenting Ministry is designed to give you the tools and support needed to disciple your child without adding more to your already busy schedule. Our programs and resources will help you put God on display in your home and allow you to create space for God-encounters in everyday life. Parenting can be tough, and we want to help you not just survive, but thrive in your God-given role.

Child Dedications 

We believe child dedications are the declaration of you, as parents, to raise your child to know and understand God and a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. Child dedications can occur at any time in a child's life (not just as infants) because it is your vow to God, as opposed to the decision of your child. In our one-hour Child Dedication class, we walk through the Bible verses and passages that will train our parents to understand their God-given roles, teach them how to bless their children, and prepare them for the day of dedication itself. If you are interested in the child dedication class and dedicating your child, register below!
