Baby & Child Dedications
Like many Unitarian Universalist congregations we offer child dedication ceremonies for infants, young adopted children, or young children whose families have recently joined the congregation.
Child dedication ceremonies are usually crafted by the parents and the minister working closely together. Many will include the following elements:
A blessing for the new life of the child
An expression of the parent(s’) or caregivers' hopes for the child
A promise by the congregation to support and nurture the child in their spiritual life
If not members of the church, a promise by family and friends to support and nurture the child in their spiritual life
Services to honor loved ones who have passed on are often very personal occasions. At the First Unitarian Church, these services are developed by the family of the deceased and our minister to specially honor the memory of that individual. The service might include the following elements:
A time to remember the deceased with a story or anecdote
Hymn singing or other music
A time for personal reflection
