Baby Dedication

Baby Dedication at Harvest

Congratulations on your desire to dedicate your child to the Lord!  Our church is eager to assist you in this important matter.  

Due to the spiritual nature of the questions asked during the Baby Dedication Ceremony, it is helpful for the Pastor to understand the marital and living situation of both parents.  Therefore, an appointment with the Pastor is essential.  Such a meeting is also a time to discuss the meaning of this event, and how a baby dedication is different than an infant baptism.

Once your application is received in the office, the office will call you to schedule an appointment with you.  After a face-to-face meeting with one of these leaders, they will let the office know and the dedication will be confirmed.

During the morning worship service, one pew will be reserved for each family having a baby dedicated.  At the appropriate time in the worship service, the officiant will invite parents, godparents and the child being dedicated to come to the front of the sanctuary to begin the Baby Dedication Ceremony.  At the conclusion of the ceremony, a Certificate of Dedication will be provided to the parents.


Dedication Signup Form

Dedications are usually scheduled for second Sundays of the month (unless there are pressing reasons for another date). Please be advised that your requested Baby Dedication date is not confirmed until you have received confirmation from HBC.  If you are requesting a dedication for more than one child, please submit a separate form for each child.
