What is child dedication and why is it important?
Child Dedication is a public sign that parents are seeking to bring their children up in the ways of Christ, set them apart, and present them to God. By dedicating a child, a parent vows to do all he or she can to nurture a vibrant faith in the life of their child.
What does child dedication look like at C3Church?
Dedication services are a time that become a spiritual milestone in the lives of our families. The Sunday services are designed to involve significant family members or people in the child’s life. At C3 we actually ask parents to make a commitment. The parents will be asked to reply “We Do”. Parents who make this vow of commitment are encouraged to raise the child in the ways instructed from the scriptures, and not according to their own ways.
