Then they brought little children to Him... And He took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them
Why do we do baby dedications?
At Athey Creek, we have the opportunity to join with parents of new babies in prayer to dedicate their children to the Lord.
We also encourage our congregation to continue to pray for these children and support the parents as they grow.
In 1 Samuel 1, Hannah promised to dedicate her son to the Lord when He blessed her with a child (1 Samuel 1:11). In the New Testament, Joseph and Mary took baby Jesus to the temple for dedication (Luke 2:22). Although we do not think this is something a family has to do, we believe that dedicating a new baby to the Lord is a very powerful, special thing. We love supporting our families and encouraging them in this way!
Scheduling Your Baby Dedication
We are happy to dedicate babies from zero to one year old! We would love to schedule a time for you to connect with one of our pastors after a church service so they can dedicate your baby to the Lord through prayer.
