"Behold, children are a gift of the Lord." Psalm 127:3
A Promise To Our Children
In dedicating our children to the Lord, we are really committing ourselves as parents to the biblical task of raising them in a way that is pleasing to God. Families with new children are strengthened when they publicly dedicate themselves to raise their children in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord.”
The Parent/Child Dedication is a special time to declare to others that your child is given over to the Lord. As parents, you are committing yourselves in the presence of witnesses to be the parent that God, through His Holy Spirit, will lead you to be. This Dedication Service is an indication of your desire for your child to one day make that personal commitment to Jesus Christ and to follow the Lord in a life of service for Him.
The benefit of a public dedication of children is the accountability it provides for us as parents. It is also a regular reminder to our church family of the importance of children and our shared responsibility in their spiritual growth. The church is an extended family for these children. Today’s children are tomorrow’s church leaders who will carry on the work of ministry.
Families with new children are strengthened when they publicly dedicate themselves to raise their children in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord.”
