Baby & child Dedications

At Timberlake Church, we encourage parents to commit themselves to raising their children in the grace and knowledge of the Lord. Dedicating your child to God is a public sign that you are seeking to bring your child up in the ways of Christ. As a community of faith, we stand beside you as you pursue this passion.

Would you like to have your baby or child dedicated to the Lord? Dedications are offered typically once per quarter. Click here to find out more information or to sign up.

Just for Parents

While we seek to teach your child about God, we know that no one has more influence on their lives than you. Did you know that the average child spends over 1,000 hours in school and approximately 1,144 hours with their parents every year, but less than 78 hours in church?

Parents have more than 10 times the opportunity to discuss spiritual issues and guide their child’s heart towards God. What happens at home is in many ways more important than what happens at church. Here are some ideas of what you can do at home to partner with Timberlake Kidz and the Family Life Team in your child’s spiritual development:

  • Talk with your children on the drive home from church about what they just learned. You will get a take-home summary on the way out of their classrooms. In it, we emphasize what kids have learned that day.
  • Start every day by praying together – over breakfast, in the car on the way to school, or while getting dressed. Ask your kids what is on their minds for the day. Pray with them & then pray for them throughout the day. In the evening talk about how things went & how they saw God answer their and your prayers.
  • Practice the weekend’s memory verse every night while brushing teeth. You can find the memory verse on the take home materials. Use a dry erase marker to write the verse on the bathroom mirror. Practice the memory verse in the morning. Then talk about how they can apply the verse throughout the day.
  • Play worship music in the car and sing together. Some great, kid-friendly worship is produced by Hillsong Kids and Cedarmont Kids.
  • Be constantly on the lookout for ways your family can serve others together. Your children will learn best by your example. Values are caught, not taught! Did your neighbor just have a baby? Cook them a meal together and deliver it. Is a grandparent feeling under the weather? Help your child make a get well card. Is your child too wrapped up in toys and wants? Consider sponsoring an impoverished child overseas who is near your child’s age.
  • Share what you’ve been learning about God during family dinner. Consider choosing a question of the night and have everyone share their answer. Some examples might be:A new girl shows up in your classroom at school. How could you help her feel welcome? Why do you think some kids like to tease others? What can you do about it when you see it? Is it wrong to cheat on a test at school? Why? What do you think the Bible says about ____ on that movie/TV show/song lyrics we just watched/heard? Engage your children in discussion by asking questions and listening to their answers before you offer your thoughts. Be real and don’t be afraid to share your imperfections as a child, along with what you learned from your mistakes.

We are excited about partnering with you in your child’s spiritual growth. If you have any questions, please contact the Family Life Pastor.
