We are so excited for you to join us for our Child Dedication this Mother’s Day! We will celebrate the commitment you make through our Child Dedication process during our Sunday morning service by bringing your family up front to affirm your public declaration and pray for your family.  

Here are some details:

Public Child Dedication:  During our 9:30 and 10 a.m. services

Child Dedication Homework: Please watch the 2 videos below.  

The "homework" below is meant to help you engage in your child's dedication.  The first video will ask you to write down a few words that you’d like to be true of your son or daughter as they grow up. We invite you to turn those words into a letter written to your child, that you can share with you friends and family.  Some families have had friends and family write a short note to the child right on the letter to make a very special keepsake.  

The second video asks you to be intentional about who you’d like to have influencing your child as they grow.

Please watch the two videos in the order below:

Watch First

Watch Second

What do I need to bring to Child Dedication?
Besides your child and any family and friends, please bring a copy of your printed "homework" letter.  

Is there an age limit?
No.  Anyone raising kids is welcome to participate.

What is the cost?
This is a free resource that Oakbrook Kids is excited to provide for you!

Is this the same as infant baptism?
No.  Child dedication is an opportunity for parents to publicly declare their desire to raise their child in the local church and to help them know and love Jesus!  It’s a special opportunity for your church family to affirm your decision and pray for your child and family!

Will my family go up front during the service?
Yes.  We will call parents and their children on stage during the adult services.

Can I check my child into Oakbrook Kids after the dedication?
Yes. Just head back to the kids hallway any time and we'll get you all set!
