Baby Dedications

At West Angeles Church of God In Christ, it is our privilege to offer baby dedications to the Lord, and to bless children and their families. Baby dedications are usually performed on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Sundays at both the 8:00 and 11:00 a.m. worship services.

Parents do not need to be members of West Angeles in order for their child to be dedicated.   We do encourage parents to live their lives in such a way that will bring glory to God. Proverbs 22:6 says “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will  not depart from it.” and Deuteronomy 6:6-7 “And these words I command you today shall be in your heart, you shall teach them diligently to  your children, and shall talk of them when you sit down in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up.”

AGE LIMIT FOR BABY DEDICATIONS

The age limit for Baby Dedications is three-years-old (for ages 4 and beyond, please see our Baptisms page). The first step in the process of having your baby dedicated to the Lord is to complete a Baby Dedication request form.  Please send the completed form by post or email to:

West Angeles Church of God in Christ

Membership Services Department

3045 Crenshaw Boulevard

Los Angeles, CA  90016

Upon receipt of the completed form, the Membership and Support Services Department will contact you to confirm your request.  The Baby Dedication is a sacred service, so it is expected that you honor the procedures provided to you.

Procedures will be reviewed at the time of confirmation, and a copy of the procedures will also be sent to you by mail.  We ask that parents advise all relatives and friends of the procedures and our church policies, in order to ensure that we continue to honor the Lord during the worship service.

Please call 323/833-7300 for more information.

Christian Education

West Angeles’ Christian Education (WACE) classes are for anyone interested in using the principles of the Christian faith more effectively. The courses offered provide all levels of biblical study and are designed not only to serve those who are called to careers in ministry, but also to empower any Christian who wants to:

  • Live with purpose through the Word
  • Understand the Bible more thoroughly and how it relates to the times we live in
  • Improve their lives, their families’ lives, and the lives of others.

Classes offered through WACE are designed to help students create a deeper relationship with God, the church, and the Christian faith.

WEST ANGELES CHRISTIAN EDUCATION CLASSES

Taught in both the traditional classroom setting and online, courses offered through WACE are designed to help students to serve the church and the world through responsible imparting of biblical knowledge.

Sunday School – West Angeles’ Sunday School has introductory-level courses for children, youth, and adults which are designed to provide a deeper knowledge of the Christian faith. Geared to help students overcome life’s obstacles and daily issues, we offer a variety of classes for children ages 5-12 years of age, and for youth ages 12-16 years of age.

For adults 17 and older, West Angeles offers classes such as TruthSeekers Sunday School class taught by Elder U.C. Henderson, which meets each Sunday at 9 a.m.  Truth Seekers does an extensive book-by-book study of the bible, discussing practical applications of God’s word in our lives, while encouraging conversations and questions of the subject being taught.

West Angeles TruthSeekers is looking for young adults who are seeking to empower their relationship with Jesus Christ, and who want to be built up in their knowledge of the gospel.

Practical Christian Living – Now that you are saved, where do you learn how to be a better Christian worker, parent, wife, or husband? The Practical Christian Living program is your answer.  Designed for those who desire to become more effective as a parent, spouse, or worker for Christ, the School of Practical Christian Living is a mid-level study program that introduces systematic Bible study and foundational biblical knowledge. 

Everyone tells us to study God’s word more often, but how does one go about studying the Bible? Practical Christian Living’s mission is to present a systematic, disciplined study of God’s Word and principles of Christian life on a non-technical level. PCL offers you an opportunity to study Bible subjects that you have always wondered about. Here, education is offered in a way that you can understand giving you the opportunity to quickly learn some values of Christian living.

Before getting started in the technical study of the Bible, it’s important to obtain a foundation of Biblical knowledge. Practical Christian Living offers several certificate courses of study to help you accomplish this goal. There is harmony and consistency of scripture that give us an understanding of the character of the Word. To learn more, please visit our PCL page HERE.
