Step 4: Commitment at Home
Family Dedication is about a commitment to put God first in your home and to trust in Him as your source of direction as you lead your family and parent your child. It is also a time for you and your spouse to share with your closest friends and family what is most important to you and to ask them for their prayer and support. During the dedication service, parents commit before God, their family, and the church to raise their child in a God-honoring way. We also ask the church to commit to partnering with these parents to do the same.
Our desire is that you will surround yourself with family and friends who will pray for you, support you, give you good advice, listen to your struggles, and, when life gets tough, help you remember what matters most. We also hope that you will partner with us every Sunday by encouraging your child to fully participate with us as we create environments to lead him or her to have authentic faith.
