Baby Dedications & Baptism
This is a ceremony for parents to publicly make a commitment before their friends and family to raise their children in a home where God is at the center. This is often your family’s first spiritual milestone with the church and our goal is to help you make it meaningful and memorable.
We offer ceremonies on a regular schedule at each campus. Before signing up for a ceremony we ask that you attend a Parent Class that will help you understand why we do both baptism and dedication here at Kensington, as well as giving you everything you need to prepare for the ceremony.
To sign up for a class at your campus or ask a question:
Family Baptism Class
Have a child in grades K-5 (age 10 and under) who wants to be baptized? Your first step is to assess their spiritual readiness. Second, we'll ask you and your child to attend a Family Baptism class in preparation for the event. Contact the Kensington Kids Directors at your campus with questions and for readiness guidelines and class date and time info.
