A Child Dedication service is an opportunity for parents to publicly declare their intent to raise their child in a way that honors God and also give the child the opportunity to eventually have a personal relationship with Jesus. In many ways a "child dedication" service is truly a "parent dedication" service, as parents publicly declare to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his own personal confession of Christ. It's also a time for family, friends, and the church body here at First Church to say we will partner with you, as best we can, to see that this takes place.
If your heart is in agreement with the purpose and the motive of a Child Dedication, then we invite you to participate. We consider this a sincere promise to God that flows out of your commitment to Jesus Christ.
