A child dedication service is actually a parent commitment service. Parents recognize God’s gracious gift of a child to them and declare their intent to raise that child with a biblical and Christ-centred foundation. Please join us in celebrating this significant moment in the lives of our families and if you wish to participate in this service on Sunday, January 12, 2020, please APPLY below.
Please remember when dedicating your child:
parents are acknowledging their child as a gift from God, (Psalm 127:3-5).
parents are publicly declaring their intention to raise their child in such a way that they are given an opportunity to know God and to establish a personal relationship with Christ, (Deuteronomy 6:49, Ephesians 6:4).
parents are affirming their total dependence upon the Lord, (John 15:5).
parents are asking family, friends and the church community to prayerfully support and hold them accountable to these commitments. (Hebrews 10:24-25).
A child dedication service is not:
a guarantee of your child’s salvation
a believer’s baptism
any indication of your child’s faith in the Lord
Please note that only those families who meet the following criteria are eligible for participating in a child dedication service: attended Step 1: Connect, attended Step 2: Consider, and are an active member of a Trinity Bible Chapel Small Group for a minimum of 6 months.
Once your application from below has been received, you will be contacted by a member of the leadership team at Trinity Bible Chapel to arrange for a convenient time for an interview. Please keep in mind that Trinity staff will plan the services and ask you to participate in a particular service that will work better for the church as a whole.
