Covenant Your Kids!

Covenant Your Kids!

Sunday, July 15, 2018

Add to Calendar

On July 15, we will be coventanting kids in ceremonies of either baptism or dedication! If you would like your family to participate, please fill out this form

Four times a year, we have a special service where we covenant our kids to the Lord. We would highly recommend these resources as you decide in which manner you would like to covenant your kids! 

At The Resolved Church, we leave it up to the Christian head of the household to decide whether or not to baptize or dedicate his children. We only ask for both sides to first be considered. Below are resources parents can use to help guide them in their decision.
