Like many Unitarian Universalist congregations, UUCH has regular child dedication ceremonies for infants and children. A Child Dedication is an opportunity to honor the blessing of children in our lives and dedicate ourselves to their spiritual nurture. Child dedication ceremonies may be crafted by the parents, the minister, and religious educator working closely together.These ceremonies are generally integrated into a worship service and 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 by our minister, either in your home or in the congregation, please contact the church office.
