Welcome to parenting! You may not realize it but it’s important to start with the end in mind! The influences in your child’s life now will impact who he/she becomes as an adult. Desire to raise great adults who love and cherish God’s Word and parent with the end in mind, not the moment. What if we make decisions based on what is best for our children’s long-term spiritual development and not their immediate compliance or happiness?
God has an exciting journey for you and your family and we want to partner with you to make this journey memorable, enjoyable and everything you hope it will be! Parents have so much in common: trials, triumphs, routines and limitations and families at The Heights want to come alongside you for the betterment of a healthy, happy home life!
Parenting is a life-long learning experience and we want to help you start strong. This Dedication event is designed to provide you with a life time of support and encouragement as you travel this journey!
The Parent/Child Dedication process consists of three steps:
Orientation: a class during which parents will have the opportunity to connect with other parents, will learn what biblical parenting looks like, will evaluate the influences in the life of their child and family and will start thinking about who their child will become as an adult. During this class, you will also receive all the details about and can register for the Celebration and Ceremony.
Celebration: a social for families to celebrate this milestone with close friends or family members who are actively involved in their lives. This is a great opportunity to get to know other parents who are traveling the parenting journey alongside you.
Ceremony: a formal opportunity to dedicate your child and family to the Lord before the congregation. Families and the church body will make a commitment to teach children about the Lord and to help them grow in their relationship with Him.
Parents are called and equipped by God to pour Christ into their children! The Heights family can train you in God’s Word and can guide you in being the Primary Faith Trainer God called you to be! We’re excited to be able to partner with you on this journey!
