If you’re a parent, no matter how old your kids are, you know the power of planning ahead and setting your family up for success (or at least trying to!). From packing the diaper bag, to bath time rituals, to sending along the right snack - your job as a parent involves lots of small decisions and lots of big ones. As a church, we want to empower and equip you in one of the biggest decisions you’ll make as a family - to raise your kids to know Jesus.
Whether you’re a new parent, new to faith, or just wondering why kid Dedication is important, check out 5 facts about kid Dedication at LCBC.
1. You’ll Lay A Groundwork of Faith for Your Family

2. You’ll Be Equipped with Education & Resources
The first step in kid Dedication is joining a parent class where you’ll learn and discuss ways to lead your family in fully following Jesus. We’ll come alongside you and other parents to host important discussions and provide resources to set you up well for the future.
