Resources for Parents
Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family. We want every child to get to experience this and family members are always invited!
In the Bible Jesus' parents dedicated Him to the Lord (Luke 2:22-40), and later he was baptized in water as an adult (Matthew 3:16-17). The ceremony of baby dedication is intended to be a commitment between the parents and God on the behalf of the child. The parents promise to raise their child in the faith. With a heart to follow this Biblical model, at Southern Hills we provide opportunities for baby dedication. To schedule a baby dedication, contact Pastor Chris.
This area is specially designed for mothers with infants to enjoy the Sunday service in a private environment where you can feed, change, and care for your baby. When you are attending a Southern Hills service, one of our ushers or Serve Team members can direct you to the Mother’s Room.
