Throughout the year, we have the joy of participating in Parent/Child Dedication. Dedication cannot impart grace or salvation to a child. Salvation only comes through Jesus Christ as each person recognizes his or her sinfulness and receives forgiveness and eternal life through Jesus Christ. Parent/Child Dedication is an opportunity for parents and the church family to present a child before the Lord and to commit to disciple the child in the Lord to the best of our ability.
God has called parents to the great privilege of discipling their children. But parents are assisted as the church family partners with them through encouragement and prayers, Children’s Ministry, and mentoring. In 1 Samuel 1:27-28 Hannah prayed for a child and promised she would give that child back to God: “So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.”
Parents and grandparents are encouraged to remember the moment when we publicly claimed these children for God and prayed that they would follow Jesus for the rest of their lives.
