We provide baby dedication service for children from infancy to 18 months of age. Baby dedications will be held on the 1st Sunday of each month.
The precedent for the ceremony of baby dedication may be found in holy scripture, as in the presentation of Samuel by Hannah (1st Samuel 1:28) and of Jesus by Joseph and Mary (Luke 2:22), Paul reminded Timothy that “from a child” he had known the Holy Scriptures (11Timothy 3:15). Jesus considered the little ones infinitely precious, and he said. “suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such the kingdom of God” (mark 10:14)
The purpose of baby dedication is really to be found in the purpose of the parents. Rightly understood, the ceremony is one of parental dedication. The parents are pledging themselves to obey the command of Paul, “provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4).
The ceremony is more meaningful when parents dedicate themselves, as well as their child to God.
