Baby Blessing

We view birth as a spiritual event – the arrival of an immortal soul into a new body. We bless babies and young children in a ritual within a church service. The blessing is done with the participation of the baby’s family, and the community. It is a welcoming of a new member and a promise by the parents, family and community to raise the child in an environment that facilitates spiritual awareness, growth and love. Often a baby blessing occurs together with a baptism and anointing.
