Parent-Child Dedications


At Brookside, we're all about helping people find and follow Jesus.  This important mission applies to all of our relationships - including our relationships at home, with our families. The parent-child relationship can be a God-provided means for dads and moms to be helping their kids "find and follow Jesus."

We want to be a church that creates a legacy of Christlikeness - so that parents are thinking about building a love for God and others into their children, grandparents are involved in the spiritual nurture of their grandchildren, and so on.

With this in mind, Parent-Child Dedications at Brookside provide a way we as a church family can:

  • Celebrate the birth of your child
  • Stand alongside you as you commit to raising your child in a way that honors Jesus
  • Agree to partner with you as you create or continue a legacy of godliness in your family

things to know

We'll have a Parent-Child Dedication some time in the Spring and some time in the Fall. Dates will be posted here and on our News and Events page.

Our Parent-Child Dedications are a meaningful part of our Sunday morning worship service. By having these dedications as a part of our gathered worship, this gives our whole church family the chance to celebrate with you, and participate in your commitment to model Christlikeness and raise your kid(s) in a way that honors Jesus.  We encourage you to invite family, friends, Community Group members, and neighbors (and anyone else) to the service when your child will be dedicated so they can join you on this important day!

There will be a brief meeting prior to the Dedication Sunday, to discuss the meaning and significance of Parent-Child Dedications. For our October 29th Parent-Child Dedications, we will have a meeting on October 8th (at Millard) and October 15th (at Elkhorn) after services at 12:15pm. Please make sure you get this date on your calendar. You only need to attend one of these meetings. This meeting will last about an hour. Our Kids Team will walk you through the morning itinerary and answer any questions you might have. For the meeting, we will have lunch, a short meeting, then we will take a video and a picture of your family, so dress accordingly, as the video will be used for the service on October 29th.

After you register, you will receive an email confirming the availability of your selected dedication date, and more information.
