Parent Commitment is a celebration! It is a celebration for parents of children under 12 months old who have demonstrated a commitment to God through salvation in Christ and church membership and who have demonstrated a commitment to each other through biblical marriage. For those parents, this ceremony is a way to publicly express their desire to raise their child in a Christian home – committed to the Truth of God’s Word, valuing the role of a church community and seeking to model Christ to their child.
Parents must attend First Camp, along with their child, prior to participating in the ceremony. First Camp assists parents in starting well as the primary disciple-makers in the home. Also, all parents who are not currently serving in the church commit to serve in the Preschool Ministry on a once-a-month basis.
Our Parent Commitment Ceremonies are led by Pastor Gregg Matte to celebrate the commitments of parents and the wonderful gift of children. Following the ceremony, parents who are not currently serving in the church commit to serve in the Preschool Ministry once a month as a way of making a difference in the local church.
Please note that there are two ceremonies on this date:
Registration is required to participate. In order to maintain the intimate nature of the ceremony, space is limited to the first forty registrants. Please contact Kelli.Meyer@HoustonsFirst.org with any questions.
