Baby dedications are a special part of our services at New Life Church. We believe that children are a blessing from the Lord. “Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from Him.” (Psalm 127:3)
The book of Samuel describes Hannah as a barren woman who earnestly prayed to the Lord to give her a child. As she prayed, she promised that her child would serve the Lord. Hannah understood that her vow to God was sacred. She followed through on her commitment, dedicating her son, Samuel, to the Lord. Hannah declared, “I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord.” (I Samuel 27-28a)
We follow the example from Scripture by including baby dedications in the services on the first Sunday of the month. Parents who are dedicating a baby are encouraged to come to the front, pray with our pastoral team, and dedicate their baby to God. Other family members and friends are welcome to join you as well.
