Baby Dedication

This morning at church, a couple from our small group dedicated their baby to the Lord. It is an opportunity for the parents to offer their child to God in prayer and to dedicate themselves to teaching the child about God and how to know Him as the child grows up.

"I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD." -Hannah, mother of Samuel (The Bible)

how beautiful. my old church in IN did tons of baby dedications, and it was always such a privilege to participate in the service and pledge that promise to help raise the child as a church family. it was always such a special time for everyone!
