WHAT TO EXPECT
When You Visit Wonderland
We want all children to love God’s Word and understand the value of applying it to their lives. We create environments and teach lessons at their level.
As families commit to attending the same service each week, children are placed in a group of familiar faces where relationships can grow.
We take safety seriously. Wonderland is staffed with security personnel, everyone gets a background check and every child’s name tag is matched to a parent-identification number.
When children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus, including games, activities, singing, and live acting.
FAMILY DEDICATION & CELEBRATION: MAY 26, 2019 | PARENT CLASS: MAY 19, 2019
No one has a greater potential to make a positive impact for Jesus in the heart of your child than you, the parent. We at Torch of Faith are thrilled to partner with you as you make a public commitment to raise your child/ren in God-honoring ways. Family Dedication & Celebration involves the whole family, not just your little one! And that’s reason to celebrate!
The Parent Class, which precedes the Celebration, is required. Please contact us if you cannot attend the class and need to make other arrangements. At the Parent Class, you will learn about Family Dedication & Celebration details, but more importantly, you will get some tips and tools in order to focus on what matters most through the parenting journey ahead.
MORE INFORMATION ABOUT FAMILY DEDICATION:
A CHRISTIAN PARENT’S COVENANT
You will not have to recite a pledge during the ceremony. You should, however, read and decide whether you are able to commit to this pledge:
“Declaring Christ as Savior and Lord and believing in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I this day acknowledge that my children are gifts from God, that I am a caretaker by His grace and, therefore, accept the responsibility for raising my family to know and follow Jesus. As a Christian parent:
- I will demonstrate for my child Christian integrity in my personal life.
- I will teach my child the meaning of fidelity in my marriage.
- I will show my child the meaning of fellowship and servanthood through my church.
- I will model my faith in my life, in prayer, a Spirit-empowered and surrendered life, and the application of the Bible’s truth as I teach my child to follow Jesus as Lord.
With God as my strength, I promise to give my child every possible benefit of home, school, church, and community. And I ask His blessing upon him/her to guide and guard through all his/her years. Amen.”
We want to help equip parents with tools that will help you review and continue the discussions begun on the weekend at home. These take-home pages, called Parent Cues, provide conversation starters, family activities, and daily devotional worksheets to encourage a week-long interaction with the lesson.
