What is Child Dedication?

It's a ceremony in which parents make a commitment before the Lord to raise their child according to God’s Word and God’s ways 


1 Samuel 1: 26–28 NIV

26 and she said to him, “Pardon me, my lord. As surely as you live, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the Lord. 27 I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. 

28 So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.” And he worshiped the Lord there.

At LifeMission Church, dedicating a child is an important and special occasion as parents make a covenant with God in raising their children, and we require parents to participate in a Child Dedication class before we are able to schedule their child’s dedication during our weekend services. If it’s been 5+ years since families have taken a dedication class, we ask that parents participate again.
