A Note on Baby Dedication:
In Deuteronomy 6, it’s very clear that God expects and desires parents to raise and influence their children to love the Lord in every part of their lives. To that end, we want to help every family by making disciples of their family members. One way we do this is by providing opportunities to do family dedications. A Baby Dedication is a ceremony where the parents make a public declaration to raise their children to live lives of faith in Jesus and for their family to serve the Lord. During the Baby Dedication ceremony, members of the church will be asked to support the family in that endeavor. It’s not a ceremony that saves your children, but a parental decision to influence, train and equip your children to one day choose to follow Jesus for themselves, as well as making the statement that “as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”
The Baby Dedication Orientation is a prerequisite for participating in the ceremony and gives you practical tools to guide you along in your family’s spiritual journey.
Since Baby Dedication is an agreement between the family and the church family, Olney Baptist Church requires that one or both of the parents are church members.
SUNDAYS AT 10AM
Every Sunday morning during our 10AM service, we have a nursery for our infant-Pre-K-aged children! They are more than welcome to stay for the service as well.
The first Sunday of each month, we have Children's Church during the service for our elementary-aged children! Everyone will meet in the sanctuary and worship together. Then the children will be walked to their respective classrooms and have a Bible lesson for their age groups.
WEDNESDAYS AT 7PM
**Beginning October 2022**
GO Kids (Elementary)
GO Youth (Middle School)
GO Kids/Youth is a time for small group study and games as we teach our kids how to be Gospel Oriented Kids/Youth (GO Kids/Youth). We invite all elementary-aged children to join!
We want to direct and orient our lives around Jesus in everything we do. Children will engage in Bible story lessons, Bible story videos, games, crafts, activity sheets, and small group discussions.
Come join us as we dive into God’s word, looking at the New Testament and how God used followers of Jesus to spread the gospel to the world!
We will meet in person on Wednesdays at 7:00pm.
** At the moment, GO Kids will be meeting in person at Olney Baptist Church, but we are following Montgomery County Public Schools. If MCPS goes virtual for school, GO Kids will do the same.
