At KUUF we want to welcome the children, to celebrate the love within and surrounding them, and acknowledge our collective responsibility to nurture them in the ways of love and justice. It is a reverential celebration of the child's inherent worth and dignity and potential to blossom, and the profound interconnection among us as well as between us and all that is. On Sept. 18, Rev. Carol McKinley will be at KUUF to do a Dedication Ceremony followed by cake and a dance party!

How do we dedicate our children?

In our tradition, we do not usually baptize infants, both because we do not believe in original sin (believing rather in the original blessing of each life) and because a baby is not yet old enough to choose their spiritual path. Instead we offer a naming and dedication ceremony which celebrates each child in their uniqueness and asks for the commitment of the parents and congregation to the child's well-being and development through the years. In the Dedication Ceremony, which is held during a Sunday morning service, each child is blessed with a rose, symbolizing both their loveliness and the unfolding possibility of their life, and with water, symbolizing their innocence and the source of life in which they came into this world.

Each family is presented with a Certificate of Dedication.

It is a joyful rite of passage both for the family and the congregation as a whole. Child Dedication Ceremonies at KUUF provide opportunities for parents to express their devotion to their children in the presence of family, friends, and our entire congregation. 

If you and your family would like to participate in the Dedication Ceremony for your children, of any age, please contact Jenell, RE Associate, at Jenell.dematteo@kuuf.org by Sept. 1, 2016.
