What is Family Dedication?
"Family Dedication is the first major milestone in the spiritual journey of parenting. Rather than the emphasis being on the child we believe that God's intended design is for the focus to be on the parent(s). We believe that parents are to be the primary spiritual influencers in their child's life and that God also uses the Church community to support and come alongside their journey.
We invite you to join Kasey Carter, Family Pastor, for our Family Dedication Class to where we can better explain what we believe and practice here at Southbrook Church as you consider whether this is a step you'd like to take with your family.

Family Dedication Class typically is held one month prior to the Family Dedication for one hour in the Family Ministry Lounge.
After attending the Family Dedication Class, the Family Pastor will follow up with the family for a parent interview. The Kids' team will follow up with parents to schedule the Family Dedication date.
