Parent and Child Dedication
Our Parent and Child Dedication service is a public commitment before God, church, and family. It provides you, the parent, an opportunity to express your desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child, to develop in them the desire to love God and love others.
Deuteronomy 6:4-7 reminds us that parents are the spiritual leaders of their children. In addition, our role as a church family is to come alongside and assist and support them in this journey. We want to improve our ability to help young parents in this process.
This is not a baptism
One month before each of the dedication weekends, there will be an orientation class for parents wanting to participate. Parents will learn about the dedication service, how to make it meaningful for their family and also will receive some important parenting information about helping their children develop spiritually. If parents are unable to attend this pre-dedication seminar, their participation in the dedication service will be postponed until they can attend the class.
For a schedule of classes and dedication services, please pick up a registration form at the nursery counter, or contact Pam Ingalls at 722-8020 ext 102.
