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.
