No one will have more influence on your child than you! We believe what happens at home is more important than what happens at church. It is our hope that we can partner with you from the very beginning. We want to be your biggest fans, your strongest supporters, and your trusted guides as you raise your child to know what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

BabyD is more than an event. It is a 3-step process that creates an opportunity for you to set aside some time at the beginning of your parenting journey to think about what will matter the most in the life of your child — to decide what you value and what you can do today that will have the greatest impact on your child’s future.

Step 1: Preparing the Parents

babyD is an event designed for parents of children. As part of the process to participate in babyD, we have intentionally compiled three short parenting messages that we feel will help you start right now, at the beginning, to do the things that will truly matter the most to you and your child in the future.   This step must be completed before moving on to Step 2.

Step 2: Registration & Preparation

To ensure a special environment, our BabyD event is limited to 5 children and registration is first come, first served.

As part of the process of participating in BabyD, we ask that parents write a letter to their child. You can download the instructions and letter here, or you can pick up a Baby D Packet @ info table.

We also need 3 photos of your child and 3 photos of your family. You can send photos to:  lifefellowshipcs@gmail.com

Step 3: Dedication & Celebration


Now, it’s time to celebrate! During this event, we will create an intimate, memorable space, and we encourage you to rejoice in the life of your child and their future. Please keep in mind that space is limited during this event.  As a result, each party will have a table reserved for a maximum of 20 people but more if possible depending on how many babies  are being dedicated.

During the celebration, you will have an opportunity to share your letter at your table, and we will lead you in a prayer of dedication. The total event will last about an hour and some fellowship time & pictures immediately after.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are there more parenting resources you recommend?

You will receive a lot of content in preparation for the BabyD,

How much does BabyD cost?
There is no cost to participate in BabyD.  We do ask that you and your family help us to bring finger food/juice for a time of fellowship right after the dedication.

How many people can I invite?
We will reserve  20 chairs for you and your family but it can be more depending on how many children are being dedicated.

What do I need to do between now and the day of the celebration?
To prepare for BabyD, you will need to write the letter to your child. You can also invite your friends and family.

We will have invitations and a paper for your letter in the BabyD Packet, or you can download them here
What do I need to bring with me?
Besides your friends, family, and child, please bring a printed copy of the letter to your child.

What should we wear?
Whatever you and your little one will feel most comfortable in!  Some people dress casually, while others wear more formal attire.

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.

We are so excited to start this journey with you and your family! If you have any further questions, feel free to send us an email at lifefellowshipcs@gmail.com.
