Are you ready to take the next step with your family? Our next Family Dedication class (required) will be February 2, at 11:45 am in room 615. Family dedications will take place the week following during normal service times. Completion of the class is required to participate in family dedications.
We see examples of children being dedicated to the Lord all throughout Scripture, with the most important one being found in Luke 2:22, “When the time came for the purification rites required by the Law of Moses, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the LORD.” Yes, even Jesus was dedicated in the Temple. Family Dedication is committing your child and your family to the Lord because of the relationship you have with Him. Family Dedication is letting your relationship with Jesus flow over into your relationships with your kids so that they would learn to have that same relationship with Jesus.
Three things are happening with Family Dedications:
1) You, as parents, are dedicating your child to the Lord.
2) You, as parents, are dedicating yourselves to the Lord, and to live according to His Word.
3) We, the church, are dedicating to come alongside you as you raise your children to know and love the Lord.
At Pure Heart, we practice the dedication of families of children up through age 5. Children, age 6 and older, are encouraged to be baptized if they have personally made the commitment of making Jesus Lord of their life.
At Pure Heart, family dedications are for children of single and married parents. This is for families who are ready to take a deeper step of commitment in following Jesus Christ. Child dedications are a public commitment of the parent(s) to honor God completely in their parenting, sexual purity, and home life.
