Parents, take on the responsibility of “primary spiritual nurturer” in your child’s life by participating with your child in the following spiritual milestones.
How does a parent take on the responsibility of “primary spiritual nurturer” in the life of his/her growing child?
A parent grows in his or her own understanding of the Bible and relationship with Christ.
Parents learn how to effectively practice age-appropriate family devotions in their own home.
Parents learn to equip their children for the natural, spiritual milestones.
Christian parents are naturally compelled to present their newborn children to God. This milestone connects new parents with the magnificent responsibility and opportunity of leading their children spiritually. When parents present their children to God even as Mary and Joseph did, they’re acknowledging two simple facts. First, this new baby is God’s creation and therefore God’s possession. Second, as stewards of God’s possession, parents have the responsibility to intentionally raise the child in a way that’s pleasing to God. In this class, we will discuss what this might look like, and how we at RPC can partner with you on this journey. The Baby Dedication ceremony during the service will occur the following weekend.
Baby Dedication Parent Class:
- September 10 | 9:15a | Central Campus | NorthPointe South Porch Room | Registration Coming Soon
Baby Dedication Ceremony:
- September 17 during Sunday morning services at both campuses
- Registration for the Baby Dedication Parent Class is required

Follow Up With NextGen Pastor
A follow up with your NextGen Pastor should occur once your child has completed the Basics for Kids class, has asked Jesus to be their Lord and Savior, can articulate his/her salvation experience, and is ready to proclaim their salvation publicly. Email Christy McCallum, NextGen Pastor, to schedule this next step.
Why a video?
Since baptism is a public proclamation of your child’s faith in Christ, we feel that the video gives your child the opportunity to share what they really want to say. Additionally, your child’s faith story is very meaningful. We want them to be able to remember it and share it with others as inspiration.
Baptisms are scheduled with your NextGen Pastor during your child’s follow up. Baptisms take place on Sunday mornings, and include a showing of your child’s pre-recorded testimony video.
5th Grade Blessing
5th graders and their parents/guardians are invited to a time of prayer, blessing, and celebration as they transition to 6th grade and to Student Ministry. Please join us for this milestone celebration. Desserts and photo booth following the ceremony.
Please join us in the Spring of 2023 for the next 5th Grade Blessing. For questions, please contact Leah McBain
