At West Angeles Church of God In Christ, it is our privilege to offer baby dedications to the Lord, and to bless children and their families. Baby dedications are usually performed on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Sundays at both the 8:00 and 11:00 a.m. worship services.
Parents do not need to be members of West Angeles in order for their child to be dedicated. We do encourage parents to live their lives in such a way that will bring glory to God. Proverbs 22:6 says “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” and Deuteronomy 6:6-7 “And these words I command you today shall be in your heart, you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit down in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up.”
AGE LIMIT FOR BABY DEDICATIONS
The age limit for Baby Dedications is three-years-old (for ages 4 and beyond, please see our Baptisms page). The first step in the process of having your baby dedicated to the Lord is to complete a Baby Dedication request form. Please send the completed form by post or email to:
West Angeles Church of God in Christ
Membership Services Department
3045 Crenshaw Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90016
Upon receipt of the completed form, the Membership and Support Services Department will contact you to confirm your request. The Baby Dedication is a sacred service, so it is expected that you honor the procedures provided to you.
Procedures will be reviewed at the time of confirmation, and a copy of the procedures will also be sent to you by mail. We ask that parents advise all relatives and friends of the procedures and our church policies, in order to ensure that we continue to honor the Lord during the worship service.
Please call Membership and Support Services at 323/833-7300, extension 0, for more information.
