It is such a joy to have so many children at our church. It seems that God blesses us with a new baby almost every week, and as believers, we want to be good steward of these gifts. Psalm 127:3 proclaims that "Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from Him." As believers, we are called to recognize that children belong first and foremost to God. God in his goodness gives children as gifts to parents, and we have both the awesome responsibility and wonderful privilege of enjoying these gifts.
Each quarter, we provide an opportunity for parents to publicly dedicate their children to the Lord. In this dedication, parents acknowledge their need for grace and mercy as they seek to point their children to Jesus. Parents also publicly acknowledge God’s sovereignty and ask for Him to use them and the church to draw their children to Himself. Then, we close in a time of prayer, asking that God would bless these parents and their children.
It is a sweet time together as a church family, and we can’t wait to see you there!
