Parent/Child Dedication


We are so excited to hear that you want to dedicate your child(ren) at the next dedication weekend on May 8th!  We call it Parent/Child Dedication because it’s not just about the child, it is also about the covenant/commitment of each parent to love Jesus and to raise children that love Him.

Register for Parent/Child Dedication

Parents with kids in Hanover, this is your opportunity again to sign the petition to keep religious exercises in school in Hanover! The schools need 60 signature each to keep this available in Hanover schools. 

Please download and sign petitions. You will need to sign one per school (if you have kids in multiple schools). You can pre-fill the petition, print and bring to the church office OR email them to

Sign-up for the next Family Night Here!

We learned there was a wide range of interest regarding family nights, so going forward we want to add an additional piece of having two options for you as families during family nights!

  • One breakout group will be lead for families with high school students and middle school students by Monique and Brock
  • Another will be lead for families with elementary school students and younger by Marty and Andrea Gunter

What if you have kids in both age ranges? You get to choose!

Our aim for family nights is to create a focused space for families to connect with one another and Jesus!
