Why we should dedicate?

A child is considered to be a reflection of God’s love. Baby Dedication is a commitment service where parents promise to raise their child in a God honoring way. The Dedication ceremony is a time to publicly make a commitment to pray for the child, love the child and guide the child toward a personal relationship with Christ. We do have Child dedication in our Church on the 3rd Sunday. You need to contact either of the Associate Pastors, Rev. Ayub Chhinchani/Rev. B.N. Satpathy or you can get in touch with the Church Secretary, Mr. Paresh Das for further details. It is not important that we only dedicate the child for the sake of it; but it is the responsibility of the parents to make them grow in the fear of the Lord from their childhood. The Church also should take responsibility towards this task.

When we dedicate our children, we need to understand this truths clearly:

  • I acknowledge that my child is a gift from God.
  • I will be a conduit for God’s love to my child.
  • I will communicate to my child that he/she matters to God.
  • I will pray for my child.
  • I will commit to do all I can to raise my child in a home that honors God, and support his/her spiritual growth.
