Parenting is the biggest job you’ll ever have. At Immanuel, we want to encourage you to be the most effective parents you can be at each stage of your child’s life. Parent and Child Dedication, Parenting classes, and moms' groups are available as resources for you as you walk this journey.

Parent and Child Dedication

At Immanuel Bible Church, we affirm that God commands parents to be the primary spiritual influencers in their children’s lives (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). Children are a gift from God and parents should teach them the Word of God, pray for them daily, and model the gospel in their homes. We as a church, desire to support the family in this endeavor through the prayers and ministries of the church. Parent and child dedication is not a ritual leading to salvation, but a simple ceremony that expresses the parent’s commitment to guiding their children in the ways of the Lord.

We have two Parent & Child Dedication Ceremonies each year. The first is on Sanctity of Life Sunday in January and the second is on Mother’s Day in May. Attendance at our Parent & Child Dedication Class is required for first time applicants. If you would like to participate in this ceremony, please complete the registration form (form coming soon) and you’ll be contacted by Jenny Britton, Children’s Ministry Director.

The next class will be held on March 29, 9:30am, Room C112.
