Parent and Child Dedication
We believe that children are best influenced in their faith when parents and the church work together to teach kids about Jesus. The Bible is clear that parents are to impress on them what they have seen and heard God do in their own lives. The church community is to support and equip parents to be spiritual leaders of their kids.
A great starting point for a family is to publicly commit before their congregation their intention to raise their child(ren) in a Christ-centered home.
We believe that Parent and Child Dedication accomplishes three things:
- It provides you (the parent) the opportunity to publicly declare your commitment to the God-given privilege to raise your child to know and follow Jesus.
- It provides us (the church) the opportunity to pray for God’s blessing upon you and your child within your church congregation.
- It reminds the church community of their collective responsibility to pray for our families.
