"Child Dedication"
Here is a brief description:

Because First Baptist Church of Fairbury believes children are a treasured gift from God, we are committed to walking alongside parents as they bring up their children.

WHAT IS CHILD DEDICATION?
The parent/child dedication is a public commitment made before God, your church, and your family.  The dedication ceremony provides you, the parent(s), an opportunity to express your desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child in partnership with God and your church, so your child will develop a relationship with Jesus Christ and grow in their capacity to love God and love others.


IS CHILD DEDICATION DIFFERENT FROM BAPTISM?
Baptism is an individual public acknowledgement stating a personal commitment to follow Christ.  Because the symbolism of baptism requires a more adult level of knowing and development, our church requires children be old enough to understand and express faith in Christ.


For children not ready for this, we encourage parents to dedicate their children to God, committing to the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual growth of their child within the community of the church.  Most parents dedicate their children as infants or toddlers, although older children may also be dedicated.



If you would like to learn more about child dedication, 
please contact one of our Pastors at the church office, 815-692-2654.
