Baby Dedication October 2019
Baby dedication is a wonderful occasion in which parents make a public declaration of faith to raise their child under God’s grace and wisdom. Dedicating your baby or child to God shows that you know your child is a gift from God and that you are committing yourself to being a Christlike example to your child. We invite you to come and share this joyous time with us at our Baby Dedication service on the 20 October 2019.
Proverbs 22:6 (ESV)
6 Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Psalm 8:2 (ESV)
2 Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
you have established strength because of your foes,
to still the enemy and the avenger.
Isaiah 44:24 (ESV)
says the Lord, your
who formed you from the womb:
“I am the Lord, who made all things,
who alone stretched out the heavens,
who spread out the earth by myself,
Jeremiah 1:5 (ESV)
5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
While baby dedication is not an officially instituted ordinance of the church, there does not seem to be any conflict with Scripture as long as parents do not view it as assuring the salvation of the child.
