CHILD DEDICATION

Parent/Child Dedication is a way for parents of younger children to declare their commitment to raise their children in a home where God is at the center and for the church to declare its commitment to partner with the families in this process.
In a nutshell, parent/child dedication is:
  • An act, which follows an example found in the Bible. (1 Samuel 1:24-2:10 & Luke 2:21-35)
  • A public statement of commitment to raising your child to know and follow Jesus Christ.
  • A parent’s commitment, not a sign that a child has made a decision for Christ.
  • A time for the church to commit to walk alongside you as you point your child towards Christ.
AS A PART OF THE SB COMMUNITY CHURCH PARENT/CHILD DEDICATION PROCESS, YOU WILL COMPLETE A SHORT COURSE (1 HR) WHICH WILL COVER THREE TOPICS:
  1. Making a Plan (a guide for your child’s spiritual journey)
  2. Making it Personal (an internal look at your own spiritual journey)
  3. Making a Partnership (building a relationship with SB Community Church to support you in your parenting)
We look forward to partnering with you and your child on the journey to knowing and following Jesus Christ!

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

Deuteronomy 6:5-7
