For each child that’s born, a morning star rises and sings to the universe who we are. We are our grandmother’s prayers. We are our grandfather’s dreamings. We are the breath of the ancestors. We are the spirit of god.

~ Ysaye Barnwell

One of the most important traditions in a religious community is celebrating life transitions with meaningful rituals.  Child dedications are one rite-of-passage offered as a celebration of children in our congregation.  A child dedication allows parents an opportunity to express their hopes and dreams for their children and allows the congregation to welcome children and dedicate themselves to the spiritual nurturing of each child.

We will offer child dedications during the worship services for any child (infant-age 12) whose family has recently joined our congregation or who has not yet had the opportunity to be dedicated.

Child Dedications are routinely offered:

  • The Sunday before Thanksgiving (Nov 24, 2019)
  • The Sunday closest to Earth Day (April 19, 2020)

Please contact Dr. Mary Lamb Shelden or Rev. Hilary Krivchenia for more information.

We look forward to celebrating this special day wtih you!
