Kids are an important part of our church! Each Sunday, they have the opportunity to interact with adults and other kids in the community through worship, prayer and having fun laughing and playing together! It is our desire that the kids in our community and from all around, come and learn more about who God is and how much He loves them.
God gives a child as a gift to us and at Dayspring we strive to teach our parents to dedicate their children back to the Lord as we honor that He entrusted that child, all children to our care. With this act of dedication you as a parent are publicly committing to raising your child up in the ways of Christ and with the same love we have being God's children. This is a choice the parent has to make and DS encourages this dedication. In a commitment to love our children as Jesus loves them, it is our prayer that they will one day follow in those footsteps, will know faith and love and know Him, our Lord in their own personal way and relationship with Him!
