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
At Athey Creek, we have the opportunity to join with parents of new babies in prayer and dedicate their children to the Lord. At that time, we also encourage our congregation to continue to pray for these children 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 six months old in front of the congregation during one of our weekend services. If your baby is six months to one year old, we would love to schedule a time before or after a service for a dedication with one of our pastors.
