She said, “Oh, my lord! As your soul lives, my lord, I am the woman who stood here beside you, praying to the LORD. For this boy I prayed, and the LORD has given me my petition which I asked of Him. So I have also dedicated him to the LORD; as long as he lives he is dedicated to the LORD.” And he worshiped the LORD there.
– 1 Samuel 1:26-28 (NASB)
A Baby Dedication is a ceremony in which believing parents, and sometimes entire families, make a commitment before the Lord to submit a child to God’s will and to raise that child according to God’s Word and God’s ways. Ceremonies at Fallbrook Church are performed the second Sunday of every other month during the 11 a.m. service.
To schedule a Baby Dedication, complete this form in its entirety. If it becomes necessary to cancel or reschedule, call the Church office prior to noon, the Friday before the scheduled date. Church membership is not required to have your child dedicated at Fallbrook.
On the day of the ceremony:
Families should plan to arrive at Fallbrook at least 30 minutes before service begins.
We strongly recommend that everyone plan to arrive at the same time.
Upon your arrival, inform a Greeter that your child(ren) will be dedicated.
The Greeter will escort you to a reserved seating area in the Worship Center.
The dedication ceremony is performed towards the end of the service.
Families will be called to the pulpit. Please line up, beginning at the right of the pulpit, facing the congregation.
Godparents are welcome to join the parents at the pulpit. All other guests are asked to remain seated.
After the Ceremony
Remain in the Worship Center after the service for photos and to give Pastor Mike the opportunity to meet and congratulate your family.
