Baby Dedications

Then they brought little children to Him...And He took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them.

Mark 10:13, 16

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!
