Child Dedications will take place at both campuses on Sunday, April 28. Child Dedication is an opportunity for families to publicly commit to raising their children in a way that’s honoring and pleasing to the Lord. It’s also a time for Long Hollow to publicly recognize these families and our commitment to partner with them as they seek to disciple their children. Each child dedication ceremony includes a light breakfast, photo opportunity, and time of prayer for the families.
