No one has a greater potential to impact a child’s spiritual development than the parents of that child! Your involvement in Child Dedication is a commitment to God that you are serious about the task that is ahead of you. In many ways, a “child dedication” is truly a “parent commissioning,” as parents publicly declare to raise their child in the faith. As a church, our aim is to join you in this special milestone and equip you as we build spiritually healthy homes together. This is also a time for family and friends to say that they will partner with you, as best they can, to see that this takes place.
Our next Child Dedication service is September 19 at 3pm (Hosted at Shiloh Campus).
You are encouraged to invite a few friends and/or family members who support your decision and want to come alongside your family as you commit to raising your children in God-honoring ways. These guests will commit to being a spiritual support, encouragement, and prayer partner to you and your family.
Child Dedication is so much more than a one-time event - it’s a journey that lasts a lifetime. We hope to come alongside you and equip you as you get started on this path to raising the next generation!
