At Colorado Community Church, we believe that parents and family are the primary spiritual leaders of their children. It is our desire to walk alongside families on their journey and be a support through resources, programming, and pastoral care.
SPIRITUAL MILESTONES FOR FAMILIES
Parents, as your child’s primary spiritual leader, we at CCC are here to support you in that role! Take a moment to think about all we do to prepare to bring a child into our family – childbirth classes, parenting seminars, adoption paperwork/home visits, and more. Now consider what we do (or don’t) to prepare ourselves to raise our children to know Jesus!
Approximately 2 months before our Child Dedication Ceremony, we offer an informational class where Kid’s Ministry will provide in-home materials to complete with your child before attending the celebration event for child dedication.
Next Child Dedication
Dedication Classes August 4th or August 8th
If you would like to dedicate your child, on October 9th, please register to attend one of the classes where Kid’s Ministry will provide in-home materials and a celebration event for child dedication.
Parents must attend one of the informational meetings on either:
Wednesday, August 4 • 6:00 pm • Kids Auditorium OR Sunday, August 8 • 12:15p • Kid’s Auditorium
CHILD DEDICATION CEREMONY: SATURDAY October 9th
Parents, as your child’s primary spiritual leader, we are here to support you in that role! We will provide materials for you to go through a process with your child that will help discern if they are ready to take the step of being baptized.
We start with a parent information class for families exploring the idea of their elementary school age child being baptized (class is for parents only). Parents will receive all the information necessary to go through a baptism curriculum at home with their kids. If, after going through the curriculum the child is ready for baptism, parents and kids will attend the Testimony Class together. Registration is required in order to have materials prepared for families.
