Child Thanksgivings & Dedications
We recognise how precious our little ones are and like to celebrate with their families as “children are a gift from the Lord” (Psalm 127:3).
We know that children are loved by God (Matthew 18:12-14), He has made them in his image (Genesis 1:27), He knew them before they were born and knit them together in their mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13), and He has a good and amazing plan for their lives (Jeremiah 29:11).
As a church family, we want to support parents, grandparents and caregivers as they seek to raise their children to know and love Jesus. We recognise the enormous influence that family has on a child and it is our desire to be able to support families as they navigate the challenging and yet rewarding path of parenthood.
Our Child Thanksgivings are an opportunity to thank God for our child(ren) and pray for them.
Our Child Dedications are an opportunity for parents to thank God for the wonderful blessing of their child(ren) and to also publicly commit to bringing their children up in the knowledge and love of Jesus, in the hope that their children will choose to accept him as their Lord and Saviour in the years ahead.
