We are having our next Baby/Child Dedication service on Father’s Day, June 15, during the 11:45am service.
3 John 4, “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.”
Baby or Child dedications are special occasions. The purpose of dedicating a child is just that – to dedicate the raising of a child in a Christian home. It is a symbolic and public way of acknowledging that children are a gift from God and that we don’t take lightly our responsibility as parents or as a church.
At Coastal we believe that baby dedications are a family affair. Not only is a child being dedicated to the Lord, but it is also a dedication the parents make –– to raise their children in the training and instruction of the Lord. It’s a parent’s outward way of giving thanks, sharing joy, and committing to be the mom or dad that God has called them to be.
It is also a way of including the church. We commit to being a help, an example, and a resource in raising their children.
