1 Samuel 1:27-28 “I prayed for this child, and the Lord granted me what I asked of Him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.”
The Chapel defines Family Dedication as the parental willingness to partner with God and the Church to raise your child.
- Though the Bible doesn’t command parents to dedicate their children it does encourage it; It is something done voluntarily by parents and isn’t age-specific.
- Whenever a new child enters a family it’s an exciting time. And it’s at this time that many Christian parents choose to dedicate themselves and their children to the Lord.
- Sensing God’s direction in their lives, parents participate in a ceremony of dedication in the presence of God, God’s family, and the church. And perhaps there is no better time when parents, family members, and the church can recall God’s plan for the family.
- Family Dedication is not infant baptism. The Chapel does not practice infant baptism.
