Baby Dedications

Baby Dedications are a time set aside in the life of the church to celebrate the entrance of a new life into the church family, by seeking God’s favor and blessings over the child and to charge the parent or parents before God and man that parents need God’s wisdom and help in raising their child and with God’s help, parents will do your best to set the example for this child to follow in the way of the LORD. Here at Star Dedications normally are done on 2nd Sundays of each month.
 
 

Baptism

As Baptist, we believe in following the example in Christ, and as such, we honor this ordinance of our faith and practice every month. Here at Star we baptize every 1st Sunday of the Month at 10:30 AM. This is a special service for all of those who have made a decision for Jesus Christ and for their family and friends to share in this memorable moment of their baptism
