SNELLVILLE: Baby Dedication November 2019
Baby Dedication is a special opportunity for you to publicly express your desire and commitment to raise your child(ren) to follow Jesus. This public expression is a covenant with God. When you choose to dedicate your child to God, you are pledging to teach and model God's Word to him/her. You are acknowledging that your child is a gift from God that He has entrusted to you to train in the ways of godliness. You cannot control your child's salvation, but you can and must petition God for his/her salvation and ask Him to show you how you can join Him in the work He is doing in his/her life. When you dedicate your child to God before your church family, you are acknowledging that your family is part of the greater family of God. This is a reminder to the congregation that they are also responsible to be a Christlike example to the child.
