—WHAT is Child Dedication?—
It is a day set aside for the family to recognize their child as a gift from God before their family, friends and the body of Cornerstone.
It’s a time for the family to dedicate themselves to seeking Christ first in their home, and to dedicate their family to Christ. And it’s also a time for the church to recognize the family and commit to support them in prayer and service as they raise their child.
Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates. –Deuteronomy 6:9
He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands. –Psalm 78:5-7
Whoever fears the LORD has a secure fortress, and for their children it will be a refuge. —Proverbs 14:26
Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. —Psalm 8-2
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. –Proverbs 22:6
