FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
I’ve already had my child dedicated or christened at a different church. Is it ok for me to have them dedicated at C3?
Yes! Dedicating your child to God is also dedicating them into a local church community. Our heart is for your family to feel honored, supported and loved by community as your child is dedicated to growing up in this house!
Is there an age limit for dedications?
There is not a strict age limit. We dedicate newborn infants as well as elementary-age children, but for kids with appropriate maturity and spiritual growth, we encourage them to publicly declare their decision to follow Jesus through water baptism.
What if my child is interested in being baptized?
We love that! Water baptism is such a beautiful moment of declaration and commitment, and we want to ensure that our kids are intentional and prepared to own their decision to follow Jesus. Everyone’s story is unique. Pastor Amy speaking here, but I knew at age ten that my decision for Christ was not a phase but rather a life-long journey! I remember being hungry to take a next step in faith and choosing to be baptized after talking to my parents and church leaders. So whether it’s age eight or eighteen, we are excited to celebrate this faith step for your child. You can sign up and find out more about baptism here.
If your child is interested in baptism, we also encourage you to let your community know! Your dinner party, location pastor and C3 Kids team would love to be a support, resource and encouragement to both you and your child!
