Our volunteers get to the building hours early to set up a full worship band and enough curtains and coffee equipment to welcome over 250 people, along with an excellent kids space where we shepherd over 70 kids to love and follow Jesus.

At the beginning of the Lion King, as Simba is born, there is the famous moment where all the animals of the Pride Land gather together for the presentation ceremony. Rafiki holds up the young cub for all to see and celebrate. It’s a powerful moment that sums up what every new parent wants to do with their baby, to hold them high for all to see and marvel. As Veritas celebrates baby dedications, each new baby in our church family will be held before the congregation; but a baby dedication is not a presentation ceremony.
