    Baby Dedication Class
    Why dedication?

    Christian parents who dedicate a child are making a promise to the Lord to do everything within their power to raise the child in a godly way, praying for the day when he or she makes a personal decision to follow God.

    BABY DEDICATION CLASS

    If you are interested in having your child dedicated at Parkview, we would like to invite you to one of our next baby dedication classes!

    At this mandatory class led by some of our pastors, we’ll outline what baby dedication means and help you find ways to raise your child in a healthy and spiritually powerful way! Both parents are encouraged to attend this class.
