As we dedicate a child, we first and foremost acknowledge God’s sovereignty in the child’s life and in the parent’s life as well.  In all of history, of all the continents, within all the races, tribes and tongues, God has chosen you to raise, love, and protect your child.  This dedication service provides you, the parent(s), an opportunity to publicly express your desire to lead and nurture your child in cooperation with the Holy Spirit. We find both Old and New Testament precedence for this precious ceremony. In 1 Samuel 1:27-28 a childless mother by the name of Hannah prayed for years for a child. Upon God giving her a son, whom she named Samuel, Hannah prayed this prayer:
“ 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.” And he worshiped the LORD there.
In the New Testament scripture of Luke 2:21-40, Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the temple for him to be dedicated. During that ceremony we find the act of dedication, prophecy towards the future, and blessing over the parents. The responsibility to raise a child in a Godly manner does not fall on the church but rather the parents. We at Navigation Church believe that weekly instructions and corporate gatherings are a wonderful tool to aid you, but it is not the completed work. Deuteronomy 6: 1-4 best describes the role and responsibility for a parent:
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
Thanks for stepping into your role as a parent and allowing us to partner with you in dedicating your child. Live an example of a life you want your child to have and be the follower of Jesus Christ they want to become. After you complete your registration we will contact you with more information on what comes next.
