"I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord." 1 Samuel 1:27-28
Child dedication is a commitment to raise your child in the ways of the Lord. It is not a statement of salvation for your child, but rather a statement of how you will raise your child. While not a command of Scripture, child dedication can be a symbol – similar to a wedding band – of your desire to obediently raise your child in the knowledge and instruction of the Lord. It should be done with a community of believers who know you personally and can commit to walking with you in this commitment.
Our next Child Dedication is Sunday May 19. If you are desiring to dedicate your child(ren), fill out the registration below. If this is your first dedication at Church at Bergen, you are requied to attend the pre-dedication class Sunday April 7.
