“Joseph and Mary took Jesus to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord.”
Children are a gift from the Lord, and Child dedication is a time for parents to publicly declare their commitment to partner with God in raising their child.
This is also a special time for family and friends, and the church body to express their commitment to assist parents with this task.
By making this commitment you acknowledge that:
1. Your child is a gift from God.
2. Your life should be lived in a way that leads your child towards Christ.
3. You need the help of family, friends, and church to raise your child.
