Join this group
We are so excited that you have signed up to have your child dedicated. We know God is smiling as you take this next step of faith with your family!

The next Baptism, Child Dedication, and Worship Night Service will be held on April 4th, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. at Blue Ridge Church.

Below, you will find more detailed instructions.

At approximately 6:35 p.m. Scott will talk for about 5 minutes about kids, parenting, and the dedication. He will then gather everyone together by calling you up, as a group, to line across the front of the auditorium, to begin the Child Dedication portion of the service.

He will ask you the following questions, as a group, and you will respond in the affirmative. No need to write anything down or memorize anything, because all of your responses will be with two words.

Here are the questions He will ask:

I PROMISE to raise my child in a loving, Christian environment. (your response: I do or We do)

I ACKNOWLEDGE that my child is a gift from God, on loan to me. (your response: I do or We do)

I WILL COMMIT to telling my child of God’s love for us, of His gift of everlasting life through His Son, Jesus, and about His promise to never leave us. (your response: I will or We will)

I WILL TEACH my child God’s Word and help him/her to study it so that he/she will have the life skills to use and apply to his/her own life. (your response: I will or We will)

I WILL PRAY for my child. I will pray with my child. I will teach my child to pray by example. (your response: I will or We will)

I WILL COMMIT to doing all that I can to support my child in his/her spiritual growth at home, at church, and in the world. (your response: I will or We will)

I UNDERSTAND that God has created my child for a specific purpose in life and that it is my responsibility to help my child discover his/her purpose. (your response: I do or We do)

That's it! Afterwards, Scott will pray for the entire group collectively.

Again, congratulations. We are here to help you and your family grow, and so excited to be part of this next step!

Thanks,

Kim
