Remy H., a student we met through Crossroads Kids Club at DuJardin Elementary School, was dedicated at Bloomingdale Church on October 29, 2017. After attending Crossroads and receiving a Bible, Remy asked if he could go through the child dedication process. We are so thankful that he had the desire to acknowledge God’s love for him. Remy’s parents, godparents, and our church family committed to praying for him as he continues to grow in his faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ.
What is Child Dedication?
When we dedicate children, we celebrate the life of the child and ask the parents and the church body to raise up the child to know God. It’s a community covenant to one another. At Bloomingdale Church, we dedicate children of any age.

Alpha Gather is a community group meeting on Wednesday Nights that prioritizes friendship, prayer, and bible-based discussions.
Every healthy family or friendship prioritizes time, in-person to be together. At Alpha Gather we see each person as a part of a faith family, so we seek to create that atmosphere together. We eat together, pray for each other, and discuss around a large table what God’s Word has to say about our lives.
As an open group, we want to welcome you too. One might say, “Well that sounds great if your a people person, but what about a smaller group of people.? This is why we meet every other week, filling the off weeks with break-out smaller groups. All of our break-out groups meet on the church campus as well and are specifically timed to provide childcare through the church’s Awana program.
Group updates are shared by text or through our Alpha Gather Facebook Page.

If I were somewhere in the age of 3 to 6 years old, I would probably love going to Children’s Church. As the NextGen Pastor, I’ve sat amongst the children and I too have been mesmerized by teachers, like Ms Denise (pictured below). From her wealth of experience as a special education teacher in Glendale Heights, Ms Denise knows how to manage a classroom, making all children feel safe and loved. She always brings out a picture of Jesus, reminding children that they are loved by Him. In her classroom, we all are learners hearing the amazing stories of the Bible.
