Child Dedications

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.

Child Dedication trainings and services take place throughout the year.

Baptisms

At Mars Hill, we teach that Baptism marks our participation in Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, with the church, to serve the world.

Special Sundays are designated to celebrate baptism together as a community. Prior to these, 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, baptism classes will be available and required for all wishing to be baptized. Learn More >
