Child Dedication & Baptism

We believe that a Child Dedication is the parents’ public commitment and promise to offer their child to the Lord and to commit themselves to raising the child for the glory of God. For more information, you may pick up a brochure in our Kids' Cove office or contact khern@encounterlife.org or call 805-302-4110.

Child Dedications

Child Dedications are held twice a year in the fall and in the spring during our services. Our next class is Sunday, April 27, 10:45 am, in the Nursery. Child dedications will be during our services on May 10/11.

Baptisms happen four times a year during our ENCOUNTER services. Bible Fellowship Church holds our baptisms in the Auditorium. Our next baptisms will be on May 3/4 weekend. If your child is ready to be baptized, please have them attend our required Baptism Preparation Class on Sunday, April 27, 9 am, Room 433.
