Metropolitan Baptist Church believes that children matter to God, and they matter to our church. We want God to lead and guide children and fulfill His special purposes in their lives. We have an amazing group of people who work with children on a weekly basis in various ministries supported by the church. They desire to supplement and complement the role of parents. We encourage parents, family members, and church members to pray for the children, to connect with them, to show them genuine care, and to guide them always to the Lord Jesus Christ.
You may have a child that you wish to publicly dedicate to the Lord, and with the congregation affirming you, ask God publicly to help you raise your child in the nurture and instruction of the Lord.
If so, there are two opportunities coming up. You can participate in a Child Dedication Service on Mothers’ Day (Sunday, May 13) or Fathers’ Day (Sunday, June 17).
If you would like to sign up for one of these dates, or if you would like more information, please call the church office (405-722-2550). Deadlines for confirming your participation are May 7 for Mothers’ Day, and June 11 for Fathers’ Day.
