Celebration Sunday!



Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Psalm 127:3    4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9       

It is better not to vow than to make a vow and not keep it. Ecclesiastes 5:5



What is child dedication?


  1. A joyful recognition that every child is a gift from God. (Ps. 127:3)
  2. An expression of parental commitment to obey the Great Commandment and the Great Commission with their kids. (Deut. 6:4-9)
  3. A vow made between God, parents and their church. (Ecclesiastes 5:5)

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
