BabyD

Let’s celebrate!

Before the Event

BabyD is so much more than just an event. Our baby dedication celebrations are meant to serve as a way for you as parents to begin thinking about what your child needs most—and we believe that is love. Yes, your love, but more importantly, the love of their heavenly Father.

Our hope is that through BabyD, you will establish a commitment to raising your child to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. And not only that, but we want to partner with you in this endeavor.

Because of that, we ask that you watch two short videos before attending this event. In these videos, you will be given an assignment to complete before BabyD. And listen—we know you’re busy—so we wouldn’t ask you to do these things if we didn’t think they were very, very important.

BABYD FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Before the celebration . . .

How much does BabyD cost?

There is no cost to participate in BabyD.

How many people can I invite?

We will reserve one table with 8 chairs for you and your family. Please RSVP by November 5th with the number that will be seated at your table.

What do I need to do between now and the day of the celebration?

Invite your friends and family. Your invitations are included in this packet. You will also need to watch two short videos in preparation for the event. These videos contain homework challenges to be shared on celebration day if you feel comfortable. GC will NOT provide an orientation day prior to the event.
You can find these videos at the top of this page.

What do I need to bring with me?

Besides your friends, family, and child (don’t forget them at home!), please bring a printed copy of the “homework”—the letter to your child. If you don’t mind sharing its contents with your guests, we suggest bringing a copy for everyone.

 

The day of the celebration . . .

What time should we arrive?

The doors will open at 10:30 am, a half hour prior to the celebration start time of 11:00 am.

What should we wear?

Whatever you and your little one will feel most comfortable in! This is a GC event!

Is this an infant baptism?

No. We believe that a child must be old enough to understand what it means to put their faith in Jesus Christ before they can be baptized. This event is an opportunity for you as parents to publicly declare that you want to raise your child to develop their own relationship with Jesus Christ.

I can barely get my child to sit still long enough to get them dressed. How will they survive the entire celebration day event?

Your child will make noise during the celebration day event. But that’s okay, because so will everyone else’s!

Will there be a photographer?

We will have a photography vignette set up for family photos.

What can I expect on the day of the celebration?

The event should last no more than 45 minutes. The program will include a welcome, prayer of dedication, and a short message. During this time, you will have an opportunity to share your homework. Snacks will be served following the program.
