24 September 2018 Parent and Child Dedication
What is Child Dedication?
Child dedication is a commitment by the parents to do their best to care for their child’s spiritual, physical, and emotional needs. During the service, parents are asked to publicly affirm their personal faith in Jesus Christ and renew their dedication to him and to his church. They are also asked to promise to bring up their child in the nurture and instruction of the Lord. If this promise is to be fulfilled, parents must teach their children, by word and example, the truths of God’s word within the home. They must also seek to lead their children to a personal faith in Christ.
A Dedication Service Is Not a Baptism.
We hold dedications once a month and rotate between the three services (Saturday one month, Sunday at 9:00am the next, and Sunday at 10:30am the next). Because of the extra time it adds to the services, we consider a service “full” once we have four children.
If you would like to schedule a dedication or have any questions about parent and child dedication, please send an e-mail to Dedications, and we will be in contact with you.
