Baby Blessing Jan. 26, 2019
Baby Blessing occurs twice a year (in January and June) in the Worship Center at 5:00 pm for babies ages birth through 24 months at the time of the event. Parents attend a required equipping class at 5 pm on a scheduled Saturday prior to the event with dinner included. Bibleland classes are available for children 3 months to 5th grade during this time. The equipping portion focuses on parents’ role as primary spiritual nurturers of their children. Parents learn how to raise their children in a way that honors the uniqueness of each child. Parents also learn how to point their children to God and show them the love of Christ. At the equipping parents are also prepared for what will occur during the time of blessing. The Blessing event includes parents making verbal responses to commitments, and it is followed by a time of prayer by the elders. After the blessing parents, grandparents, other family, and friends are invited to a cake and punch reception. During the reception families receive a small gift to commemorate the occasion. Space is limited, register by Jan. 7. For questions please email Meghan Cruz.
