Baby Dedication is a time in which parents who have already professed belief in Christ make a commitment before the Lord to raise their child in a way that follows God's will according to His Word, the Bible.
Christian parents who dedicate a child are making a promise to the Lord to do everything within their power to raise the child in a godly way until the child can make a decision on his or her own to follow God. Parents who make this vow of commitment are instructed to raise the child in the ways of God, and not according to their own ways. Some of the responsibilities include teaching and training the child in God's Word, demonstrating an example of a godly life, disciplining according to God's ways, and praying earnestly for the child.
Because we do not take this lightly, we require parents to attend the Baby Dedication Class on Monday, May 7 @6:30 PM in The Cove. At the end of the class, parents may sign up for baby dedication.
Baby dedication and classes are free. Childcare for any children of parents who desire to participate is provided at no charge, though children must be registered by Sunday April 29th.
Baby Dedication will take place during every service Sunday, May 13th
