Rather than holding Christian-style baptisms or christenings, First Unitarian offers to its members child dedication ceremonies for infants and children. Our Easter service traditionally features a child dedication ceremony.
Child dedication ceremonies are usually crafted by the parents, our minister, and religious educator working closely together. The ceremony typically will include the following elements:
- A blessing for the new life of the child
- An expression of the parent or parents’ hopes for the child
- A promise by the congregation to support and nurture the child
If you are interested in having your child dedicated, feel free to contact our minister or religious education director.
