What is Child Dedication?

We actually like to call it Parent-Child Dedication, because it is a time when Christian parents present their child to God. Our model is based in Luke 2:21-40 when Joseph and Mary brought Jesus as an infant to the temple to present Him to God. Likewise, Parent-Child dedication is a public pledge made by parents to God, in the presence of the church family, to do everything within their ability to raise their child to love Jesus and His people.
