  2. Parent & Child Dedication Class

    Dear Parents of Hope,

    Have you recently added a child to your household? Is it time for you to dedicate yourself to raising this little person in ways that honor the Lord Jesus? Are you looking for support and encouragement as you labor to create a Christian home for your family?

    You are invited to join Pastor Matt Ryniker in a conversation about why we dedicate our children and how we can walk out our commitment faithfully. We’ll also discuss common parenting issues and have a time of questions and answers. Couples are encouraged to attend these classes together.

    We will meet on Wednesday, October 25 from 6-7:30pm.

    The dedication service is scheduled for Sunday, November 12, 2023

    Sign up for the classes and childcare by contacting Hala.
