Baby Blessing (aka christening and dedication)

I have had the honor of performing hundreds of wedding ceremonies over the past 25 years. It never gets old and I never take it for granted. However, there is one thing I happen to enjoy even more than weddings, and that is dedicating babies (aka christening or blessings). Especially if I had the privilege of marrying the couple as well.

Typically, I ask the couple a few questions about their commitment to the child, I ask the friends and family if they are “all in” in helping the couple raise the little one. Then I humbly ask God to bless the little one and the parents as they combat the world for the sake of the child. It’s often sweet, emotional, and inspiring. I LOVE it.

There are many different passages of the Bible one can use, but the passage in Mark (10:13-16) tends to be my favorite.

If I can help you and your family with this, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d love to help!
