Parent Child Dedication
What is Parent Child Dedication?
At Northbrook, child dedications are a joint expression of a parent’s desire to raise godly children, and our commitment to support you as you walk in that calling. As a church, we are committed to empower parents and help families raise God-honoring kids. We count it an honor to be entrusted with that privilege.
Why does Northbrook do Parent Child Dedication?
1 Samuel 1:27-28 tells how a godly woman named Hannah prayed to God for years to give her a child. He answered her prayers and she gave birth to a son, whom she named Samuel. Hannah prayed these words, “I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.”
Child dedication is a time for parents, like Hannah, to commit themselves to raising their child God’s way. It’s a powerful time for parents to embrace the responsibility they’ve been given by God and to catch a vision of the impact they can make in their child’s life.
The date of the next child dedication is to be determined.
