Child Dedications & Blessings

“Thank you so much for helping me set up the service and the music today.  It was perfect, we could not be happier.  It was wonderful to share it with you!” Alderman Family




“We recently held a dedication ceremony for our younger son at First Unitarian Congressional Society Brooklyn and had a wonderful experience! The staff was friendly, quick to respond and really accommodating. We really felt welcome there and the staff went above and beyond to make sure the ceremony was what we wanted. The church itself is beautiful inside, and our whole family felt like special guests when we arrived. We also had our older son dedicated here, which is why we returned.”    Robin Lester Kent                                      

Congratulations on the new addition to your family!

We welcome all families to celebrate a new child or children with us. Blessings are typically held on Sunday at 2pm, but contact Renee Strickland, if you’d like to arrange an alternate day or time. Members of the congregation for at least one year are entitled to free or low-cost blessings.  Please see the policy 

Typically, children’s ceremonies are less than 20 minutes, but you will have the space for an entire hour to set up and take photos. You are welcome to bring in music, decorations, and any toys or objects that will make your children most comfortable.

If you would like to arrange a Child Dedication you will be asked to complete a short form. Renee will be in touch with you to finalize the date and make final arrangements.
