We love celebrating life with young families with our Child Dedication service. This is an amazing time when parents and family praise God for a precious, new life and pledge themselves to follow the Lord’s leadership in their child’s development.

Frequently Asked Questions:
I’ve already had my child dedicated or christened at a different church. Is it ok for me to have them dedicated at Soma?
Yes! Dedicating your child to God is also dedicating them into a local church community. Our heart is for your family to feel honored, supported and loved by Soma as your child is dedicated to growing up in this house!
Is there an age limit for child dedications?
There is not a strict age limit. We dedicate newborn infants as well as elementary-age children, but for kids with appropriate maturity and spiritual growth, we encourage them to publicly declare their decision to follow Jesus through water baptism.
What if my child is interested in being baptized?
We love that! Water baptism is such a beautiful moment of public commitment to Christ, and we want to ensure that our kids are intentional and prepared to own their decision to follow Jesus. Everyone’s story is unique. So whether it’s age eight or eighteen, we are excited to celebrate this faith step for your child. You can sign up and find out more about baptism here. (Link to baptism)
If your child is interested in baptism, we also encourage you to let your community know! Your dinner party crew, Soma team leader (if you serve on a team) and our Soma Kids leadership team would love to be a support, resource and encouragement to both you and your child!
