Infant Baptism and Dedication
Orchard Hill Church currently offers both infant baptism and baby dedication as options to parents. Infant Baptism and Dedication celebration services are held twice each year - in the spring and in the fall.
Infant Baptism is celebrated as a sign and seal of a Covenant Relationship, including the child in the Covenant Community of God. Baptism is a means of extending grace with the hope that saving faith will follow as the child grows and matures in their own relationship with God. Parents, family members, friends and the congregation make vows to raise the child until the day that the child can make his or her own profession of faith in Jesus Christ.
Baby dedication is when parents bring their children before the Lord as an act or worship and commitment. It is a time when parents publicly declare their desire to raise their children in such a way that they come to a point of personal faith. Children who are dedicated as infants or young children may choose, when they are older, to be baptized through the sacrament of Believer Baptism.
