Baby & Child Dedications

We value the families we have at Woodland and want to do all we can to walk alongside them as they raise their children in God’s love. One of the things we do is give parents an opportunity to dedicate their child. Child dedication is a time when parents give back to God the gift he has given to them and commit to raising their child in a Christ-centered home.

Child dedication is a practice modeled throughout the Bible (I Samuel 1:24-28; Luke 2:21-40). It is also different from baptism. We believe that baptism should take place after a person, whether adult or child, makes a personal decision to follow Jesus.

We invite any parent(s) to consider child dedication, regardless of how long you have regularly attended Woodland, or how long you have been a Christian.

Upcoming Celebration of Life Dedication Dates:
  • Parent meeting: April 19 at 9am
    Celebration of Life: May 9 at 4pm

Registration is required, so please fill out this form if you’re interested in joining us! You can contact Kerry with any questions.

"We have been podrishioners for several months. Our daughter, son-in-law and grandkids moved back to California after living in MN for 10 years. They attended Woodland Hills for about a year before they moved. Now we all go to the beach together on Thursdays, come home and have dinner together, then we watch last Sunday’s sermon together. It is a special day for our family."

– Dale and Patricia, from California
