Baby Dedication October 23rd 2016

A Mosaic Baby dedication is a gathering and a practice where parents pledge to raise the child in the ways of God, the child is dedicated to God and prayed for, and the church agrees to support the child and the parents.

Mosaic Baby Dedications will be held on October 23rd. If you are interested in being a part of this Baby Dedication or have any questions about a baby dedication, contact Johni Morgan.

At Mosaic, we hold baby dedications to provide an opportunity for parents to commit themselves to raising their children in the grace and knowledge of the Lord. Dedicating your child to God is a public sign that you are seeking to bring your children up in the ways of Christ, and as a community we stand with you in that passion.

Deuteronomy 6:5 Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that’s in you, love him with all you’ve got! 6 Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you 7 and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. 8 Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder; 9 inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your city gates.

The family is the key place where a child learns and develops their understanding of God and His love. They learn this primarily through the teaching of their parents. It is God’s desire that believing parents establish homes where God is honored and glorified and where parents model love and faith in Jesus Christ. It is our desire as a Church to walk alongside parents in this process, enabling, equipping, and encouraging them in this God-given role.

Thus, A baby dedication, which can take place at any time in your young child’s life, declares that you, with the support of the Church, are committed to this role.

Thanks to the Imago dei Community for words & wisdom about baby dedications.
