Child Dedication

Significance of Child Dedication

Two Sundays each year, the church family joins with parents in celebrating the precious gift of children and committing to raise them to know and follow Jesus Christ (Ephesians 6:4, Proverbs 22:6).

In dedicating your children, you'll acknowledge several biblical truths as a parent:

  • That your children are a gift from God entrusted to you by God
  • That you are called to believe the gospel and set an example for your children of life and conduct befitting the gospel
  • Your children are to be brought up with great affection in the loving discipline and instruction of the Lord
  • You are to love your children deeply from the heart, continually affirming your love and God's love for them

How To Participate

Members of Covenant Life who have recently had a baby, welcomed an adopted child into their family, or have a young child who has never been dedicated are invited to dedicate their children to the Lord at the next Child Dedication during our Sunday service. If you would like to participate in the dedication service, we ask that you attend the Child Dedication Class the day before.
