Baby Dedication

Several times each year we take time in a Sunday Morning Worship Service for Baby Dedication.  During this service segment we pray special blessings on families with new babies and also for anyone new to the POA family who would like to have their children dedicated.  Baby Dedication is our way of welcoming these newest POA members to the family of God.   See below for a list of scheduled Baby Dedication dates. We are now accepting registrations for the November 12 Baby Dedication ceremony. Click here to register online for November 12 Baby Dedication, or  you can call the church office at 318.487.8976 and register your baby/child for Baby Dedication via phone. 

 

Baby Dedication Ceremony Information

If you register for Baby Dedication, special seating will be reserved for you and your family members for the day of dedication.  Please see an usher or hostess, and they will direct you to the proper section. 

  • At the close of service, please go to the landing by Pastor’s Reception (located outside doors 9 and 10) to receive your child’s “Certificate of Dedication” and have your pictures taken.  
  • You will verify your address information with a staff member sitting at a table in that area, then have your family’s picture taken with Pastors Anthony and Mickey Mangun, in the Pastor’s Reception Area.  This Family Picture (child/parents/siblings only—with the Manguns) will be a complimentary special keepsake of your baby’s dedication day.
  • If you must leave without getting your picture taken, the certificate will be mailed to you.
