Child Dedications + Baptism
Child Dedication at Mars Hill is a practice in which parents make a solemn commitment to raising their child in the faith: in knowing Jesus as the only hope for bringing reconciliation between God and humanity. This service typically includes a Scripture reading, prayer, a “Family Covenant” reading, and a series of vows spoken by parents. If desired, parents and families may personalize these services; for example, including blessings or prayers from grandparents or incorporating meaningful songs and/or other creative elements. Child Dedication trainings and services take place throughout the year.

At Mars Hill, we teach that Baptism marks our participation in Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, with the church, to serve the world.
Each spring, we set aside a special Sunday to celebrate baptism together as a community. Prior to this, parents may discern with their child when they are ready to publicly proclaim their faith through baptism. In order to help you both with this decision, a Kids + Families baptism class will be available and required for all wishing to be baptized. Learn More >
