CHILD DEDICATION

Child dedication is a commitment to raise your child in the ways of the Lord. This dedication is not a statement of salvation for your child, but rather a statement of how you will raise your child. While not a command of Scripture, baby dedication can be a symbol – similar to a wedding band – of your desire to obediently raise your child in the knowledge and instruction of the Lord. It should be done with a community of believers who know you personally and can commit to walking with you in this commitment.

Throughout the year, we offer opportunity for young children to be dedication to God by their families. We typically have child dedication services two times a year. The dedication ceremony is a symbolic way for parents to offer the child to God and recognize that as parents, they are stewards of the child's life. It also acknowledges the parent's intent to raise the child in a God-honoring manner.
As a part of this dedication, you as a parent commit to:
  • Publicly affirm your personal faith in Christ as renew your dedication to Him and His Word.
  • Pray for God's direction in your lives and in the lives of your children
  • Faithfully participate in a Christian community as a family
  • Teach your children the Truths of God's word
  • Anticipate and seek to lead your children to a personal faith in Christ
The next child dedication ceremony is TBD.
