We are so glad that you are interested in dedicating your baby at Hope East Queens!

Infant Dedication is a time set aside where parents make a commitment to intentionally parent their child with an end in mind. It's a time for your family & friends to come alongside you & commit to helping you achieve your end goal for your child. Lastly, it's a time for the church to declare, we'll partner with you to help your child develop into a growing follower of Jesus.

Below are the steps to take if you'd like to have your infant child dedicated at Hope:

 

1) STEP 1: Listen to the parenting talks provided and complete the homework.

This is an important first step in the process because we want to inspire you to invest in the things that will matter the most to your child’s future. We want to help you get off to a great start as you parent your new infant.
